“I would say there are two and a half options that we’re discussing. One is SpaceX, that is clear. Another one is possibly Japan. It is waiting for the inaugural flight of its next-generation rocket. Another option could be India, “ESA Director General Josef Aschbacher said.

After the deterioration in relations between the West and Russia due to President Vladimir Putin’s war on Ukraine. Therefore, several missions, including a joint Mars project with Russia, have been delayed.

Aschbacher stated that while the discussions are still exploratory, SpaceX is the more operational of the two and unquestionably one of the backup launches they are considering. It has been in a perfect position to take advantage of the Russian fallout with the West.
