After a long stint at the bargaining table, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) has announced that education workers will not strike on Monday, having reached a tentative deal with the Ontario government.

The union set a deadline of 5 p.m. on Sunday to reach a deal with the Ontario government. Around 5:40 p.m., Education Minister Stephen Lecce announced in a news conference that education workers will not be walking out. The union made the same announcement via Twitter.

NASA’s Artemis 1’s uncrewed Orion capsule has been cruising toward the moon since Wednesday morning (Nov. 16), when it launched atop NASA’s gigantic Space Launch System (SLS) rocket. 

Orion will finally reach the moon on Monday morning, skimming just 130 kilometers or so above the lunar surface at 7:44am , if all goes according to plan. During that close approach, the capsule will fire its main engine in a “powered flyby burn,” which will set it on course to enter lunar orbit four days later.
