Throughout Artemis I the European Service Module (ESM) surpassed expectations. Now, as we set our sights on Artemis II, the European Service Module is able to as soon as once more function Orion’s major energy and propulsion element and hold the spacecraft on the proper temperature and on the right track. And this time, with actual astronauts on board.
ESM-2 stands as a testomony to ESA’s contributions to NASA’s Orion spacecraft and the Artemis programme, guaranteeing the crew can have the necessities – from electrical energy to temperature management – within the vastness of area.
Subsequent up, ESM-2 might be related with the crew module to create the Artemis II car. It can then be tAhoroughly examined earlier than launch scheduled for subsequent yr.
ESA is dedicated to ship astronauts past low-Earth orbit and in the end to the floor of the Moon and past. ESM is a key contribution to this joint worldwide endeavour.
