The Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) was an expendable cargo spacecraft designed by the European Space Agency. Although it only flew five times from 2008 to 2015, the design was adapted to become the basis for the Service Module used by the Orion MPCV currently flying on NASA's Artemis Program since 2022


  • The default Go-to Object will take you to the ISS itself, and you can only see the five ATVs from 2008 to 2015 only
  • Requires the International Space Station addon installed for this to fully work on Celestia
