Constellium brings NASA’s Artemis mission to Ravenswood


RAVENSWOOD, W.Va. (WTAP) - Constellium announced in news release Thursday that it will be working with NASA on a program aimed at putting the first woman and the next man to the Moon.

“Well, it came about many years ago starting with the development,” CEO Buddy Stemple said. “It takes decades of development and planning and design. This is the largest rocket that humanity has ever built and we’ve had a team of people working specifically on this for many years.”

Stemple said that NASA most likely picked Constellium to work on its Artemis program because the company’s material was simply superior to anything else that is available in the market. Plus, Constellium has a way to produce very wide and thick plates for space models.
