Futuramic’s installation of the new Exploration Upper Stage (EUS) tooling is underway at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility. The EUS, part of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) Block 1B configuration for Artemis IV, will provide power to send astronauts in NASA’s Orion Spacecraft along with heavy cargo to the Moon and beyond.
“The EUS, which will be used in NASA’s Space Launch System Block 1B configuration for missions beginning with #Artemis IV, will provide power to send astronauts in NASA’s Orion Spacecraft along with heavy cargo to the Moon and beyond. Through NASA Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon, paving the way for a long-term lunar presence and serving as a steppingstone on the way to Mars.”
