ESA To Supply Service Module For Orion Crewed Mission
Hey Space Placers!
The European Space Agency (ESA) will supply a fully functional service module
for the 1st Orion crewed mission set for sometime in 2021.
Orion & Service Module
This mission will be essentially a repeat of Exploration Mission 1 (EM-1) currently scheduled for 2018 which will be an unmanned Orion launched by the new Space Launch System (SLS) on a 3 week plus mission out to lunar orbit & beyond.
