Artemis II European Service Module Work Proceeds
Technicians at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida move the Artemis II European Service Module to a lifting station inside the Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building on Jan. 13, 2023.
The lifting station will allow teams to install Orion’s orbital maneuvering system engine nozzle and heat shield. Artemis II will be the first crewed flight test of the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft.
The service module will provide the power necessary to propel astronauts on a trip around the Moon, including the in-space maneuvering capability and other commodities necessary to sustain crew for the duration of the mission.
