Artemis is the first new human rated heavy lift rocket since the 1970’s era Apollo Missions to the moon. The launch of this rocket will be the culmination of a decade of work by Futuramic, located in Warren Michigan. There have been many challenges over the last 10 years but Futuramic has remained focused on the goal. The launch of Artemis Is a history making event that showcases “Made In America”, “Made In Michigan” and “Made In Macomb County”. Most people living In the area are unaware that much of the capability to build the Artemis Core Stage came from Macomb County Michigan and our automotive heritage.
Futuramic and It’s associates are proud to be an American company supporting the American Space Program.

Futuramic’s approximately 250 associates have designed, built, installed, calibrated, and maintain the majority of the tooling used to build the liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen fueled core stage. The Core Stage is the portion of the rocket that lifts the crew capsule and service module from the surface of the earth to high earth orbit. From high earth orbit the crew capsule and service module will go on a 42 day, 1.3-million-mile journey to the moon and beyond before returning the crew capsule to earth for recovery. The Artemis 1 mission launching is the unmanned test for the Artemis 2 mission where Astronauts will return to orbit the moon in 2024. Futuramic has manufactured large scale structural flight hardware for Artemis 2 and beyond. This structural hardware Is manufactured using a unique process developed by Futuramic.
