ESA Joins NASA on Moon Ship Project
The U.S. is accepting a little help from some friends in an effort to get man out near the moon once again.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the story:
When NASA sens its Orion capsule out towards the moon in several years, the European Space Agency will provide it with a service module that:
(Gerstenmaier) “Provides some critical supplies and propulsion for the Orion capsule itself.”
NASA’s Bill Gerstenmaier talking about the ESA’s contribution, which he says was built off their partnership on the International Space Station.
(Gerstenmaier) “That experience gained and that trust allowed us to really go ahead and put together this service module agreement.”
The idea is to go to the moon, then beyond – starting with lunar fly-bys a little less than a decade from now.
