Europe ready for Artemis


ESA and NASA are working hand in hand before the first Artemis mission to the Moon through a series of joint mission simulations. Teams based at the Erasmus Support Facility (ESF) at ESA’s ESTEC facility in The Netherlands, the German Space Operations Centre at ESA’s Columbus Control Centre in Oberphfaffenhofen and NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston are combining their expertise in a series of exercises to ensure a successful launch.

When it comes to simulations, it’s important that not everything goes perfectly right as it recreates – in real time – different stages of the mission to monitor the spacecraft’s position, propulsion, power, avionics and thermal properties. The European team, consisting of 40 people from ESA and industry, apply their considerable expertise from working on the European Service Module (ESM) to any unexpected problems. The ESM will provide power for the Orion spacecraft and propel it along its orbit to the Moon.

  2. Eu sei que a exploração espacial esta condicionada pelos orçamentos …mas o legado deixado pelos que pisaram a Lua, não seria mais frutuosa a continuidade e já termos os pés na Lua em vez de andarmos a vaguear por Marte?! Esperamos que o sonho se concretize e se torne uma realidade..que o contributo seja uma conquista incrivel e que se torne um enorme passo para a humanidade sair para outro mundo!! Um feito espectacular com a Artemis a voar!!
