Airbus Delivers Orion “Powerhouse” To NASA

5 November 2018
Reuters reported that Airbus delivered the “powerhouse” Friday for NASA’s new Orion spacecraft “that will take astronauts to the Moon and beyond in coming years, hitting a key milestone that should lead to hundreds of millions of euros in future orders.” Airbus engineers in Bremen, Germany, on Thursday “carefully packed the spacecraft into a special container that will fly aboard a huge Antonov cargo plane to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a first step on its way to deep space.” In Florida, the module will be joined to the Lockheed Martin-built Orion crew capsule, “followed by over a year of intensive testing before the first three-week mission orbiting the Moon is launched in 2020, albeit without people.” (Image Credit: NASA)
