The first flight of the Artemis programme, which will see humans return to the Moon, is scheduled to begin soon. The lunar spacecraft consists of NASA’s Orion crew module and the European Service Module, or ESM. Developed by ESA and building on technology from its Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), the ESM will provide propulsion, life support, environmental control and electrical power to Orion. The Artemis 1 spacecraft modules are undergoing thermal vacuum and electromagnetic interference tests in the world’s largest space simulation vacuum chamber at the Glenn Research Centre’s Plum Brook Station in Sandusky, Ohio, USA.

  1. Adding ESA to the mix will make this program doomed! Esa is full off cost over runs and delays and will cause push backs on launch dates. Why not just let PRIVATE companies do the work.Any government agencies have have a long standing record of delays due to the bureaucracy.. Run your country and leave space to private companies!
