English: EDS JSC2007e113278, 2007 --- The Earth Departure Stage (EDS) will function as a second stage to circularize the rendezvous orbit with its single J-2X engine and, then, provide the impulse to deliver 65,000 kg to lunar orbit. The Altair lunar lander will rest upon the EDS during launch and only detach upon disposal of the EDS into a solar orbit. As Ares V will not carry crew, it does not have a Launch Escape System. An aerodynamic shell protects Altair during launch and is discarded during ascent as soon as atmospheric drag become negligible.

L’atterrisseur lunaire Altaïr restera sur l’EDS pendant le lancement et ne s’en détachera qu’après mise en orbite solaire de l’EDS. Comme Ares V ne portera pas d’équipage, il n’aura pas de système d’évacuation au lancement. Une coque aérodynamique protègera Altaïr pendant le lancement et sera rejetée pendant l’ascension dès que le « drag » deviendra négligeable (le « drag » étant la force aérodynamique dans le même sens que le vent relatif qui s’applique
