    went to the Deutsches Filmmuseum Frankfurt (Museum on Cinema) for an Exhibition on 2001. Saw some cool stuff. Edit: forgot that imgur albums aren‘t working on here anymore.

    I'm a little bit sad that this was the last of the stubby Ariane 5's. They look so cute.

    NASA SLS/Orion/Payloads

    All in all this really doesn't change that much of the overall schedule. When em-2 was supposed to fly with the LOP/G propulsion element, they weren't supposed to arrive in Lunar orbit at the same time and wouldn't have done a rendezvous. They basically split the mission, and now it's possible to fly the Block1b unmanned before putting people on it.

    NASA SLS/Orion/Payloads

    RTLS is completely incompatible with the SLS design. It‘s core will be extremely fast and high when it is deactivated. The only thing i could imagine working would be a smart style engine only recovery.

    All these Organizations will likely contribute small parts to an upcoming Lunar mission infrastructure. Arianespace in the end likely more then some mentioned by you. They are just not hyping it up as much
