The MPCV program was announced by NASA on May 24, 2011. Its design is based on the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle from the cancelled Constellation program. It has two main modules. The Orion Crew Module is being built by Lockheed Martin, and the Orion Service Module, provided by the European Space Agency. As planned, the Crew Module will be 16 ft. 6 in. diameter and 10 ft. 10 in. length, with a mass of about 19,000 lb.
