Flying to the Moon
Airbus’ European Service Module (ESM) will power NASA’s historic return to the Moon under its Artemis programme.
When NASA’s Orion crewed spacecraft sets course for a historic return to the Moon by 2024, it will rely on unique Airbus technology for a range of essential functions – from the supply of air and water to propulsion, power and thermal control. This technology is brought together in the European Service Module (ESM), built by Airbus for ESA.
