How much missions for Orion?
« on: 02/23/2016 06:50 PM »
Exploration Mission 2 (EM-2) and Asteroid Retrieval Mission (ARM) are the only manned missions for Orion/SLS in 2020s decade? And if yes, can this space system be sustainable with a fly rate so low?

(Which mission, and when after ARM?)

The only SLS mission that Congress is backing so far is Europa, which does not require an Orion.   ARM is still a paper proposal.  So far, Orion has no missions in the pipeline at all other than testing it, for... mmm..   something.
