Access to Low Earth Orbit

Plans for the Artemis Project Reference Mission assume that we can purchase the service of launching our crew and space craft to low Earth orbit from other sources. Getting to LEO could be as much as two-thirds of the cost of the Reference Mission; however, current development in new launchers may significantly reduce the cost for this phase of the flight.
