Super Guppy transports Orion spaceship @wings magazine UTC "With the tests, we will show that the spacecraft's systems work as planned and at the same time ensure safe operation for the astronauts on future missions – both on the ground and on board," said Matthias Gronowski, chief engineer for the European Service Module that Airbus is building for NASA on behalf of ESA. After successful testing at Plum Brook, the Super Guppy will once again transport the Orion back to NASA's Kennedy Space Center, where further tests and preparations for integration with the SLS rocket will take place before the first launch of Artemis I at the end of 2020 – without astronauts on board.
