In the Parachute Refurbishment Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, senior aero composite technicians pack a colorful main parachute for use on the Ares 1-X rocket test flight. To understand the colossal size of the Ares chutes, imagine a cluster of three brightly colored canopies that cover more than two acres and are 325 feet long from end-to-end. Kevlar makes these new parachutes stronger and lighter than their nylon predecessors. Although the cute is bigger, it still fits into the...

NASA's Kennedy Space Center welcomed the arrival of the Ares 1-X Forward Skirt on Nov. 10. The Forward Skirt is the initial piece of first stage hardware in preparation for the test flight of the agency's next-generation spacecraft and launch vehicle system targeted for July 2009. The hardware began its trip Nov. 7 from Major Tool & Machine Inc. in Indiana. Major Tool is the subcontractor to Ares 1 prime contractor Alliant Techsystems Inc., or ATK, in Utah. The Forward Skirt was delivered...

The full-scale mock-up of NASA's Orion crew module is being tested in the water off the coast of Kennedy Space Center in Florida the week of April 6. The spacecraft mock-up traveled from the Naval Surface Warfare Center's Carderock Division in Bethesda, Md., to Kennedy. The goal of the operation, dubbed the Post-landing Orion Recovery Test, or PORT, is to determine what kind of motion astronauts can expect after landing, as well as outside conditions for recovery teams.

On March 19, five railroad cars containing four reusable solid rocket booster segments and the nozzle exit cone for the Ares 1-X test rocket were assembled at Kennedy's Wilson Yard by the NASA Railroad for delivery to a rail siding within the secured area of Kennedy Space Center. The first segment was then delivered to Kennedy's Rotation, Processing and Surge Facility at Launch Complex 39 in preparation for prelaunch processing. On March 26, the rail car cover was removed and a post-arrival...

NASA's Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS, arrived in Florida on Feb. 19. It will be prepared for flight at Astrotech Space Operations facility in Titusville, near Kennedy Space Center. The satellite's mission is one of the first steps in NASA's plan to return astronauts to the moon. The primary mission of LCROSS is to search for water ice on the moon in a permanently shadowed crater near one of the lunar poles. Launch is targeted for this spring.

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, spacecraft arrived in Florida on Feb. 13 and was transported to a payload processing facility at the Astrotech Space Operations facility in Titusville to being preparations for launch. The spacecraft's solar arrays were deployed and checked out for flight on Feb. 15. The satellite's mission is one of the first steps in NASA's plan to return astronauts to the moon. LRO will spend at least one year in a low polar orbit on its primary exploration...

Space shuttle Atlantis was moved Thursday, Sept. 4, from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., for its upcoming mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope. The move is referred to as "rollout." Now that the shuttle is in launch position, Atlantis' crew will arrive at Kennedy on Sept. 21 to participate in a full launch dress rehearsal, known as the terminal countdown demonstration test, scheduled for Sept. 22-24. Atlantis is targeted...

Space shuttle Atlantis was moved Monday, March 23, from its Orbiter Processing facility to the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., for its upcoming servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. The move from Atlantis' hanger is referred to as a "rollover." Following rollover, technicians in the Vehicle Assembly Building attach the lifting sling to Atlantis for rotating and hoisting. The shuttle then is mated to its external fuel tank and twin solid...

On Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a crane completes construction of one of the towers in the new lightning protection system for the Constellation Program and Ares/Orion launches. Each of the three new lighting towers will be 500 feet tall with an additional 100-foot fiberglass mast atop supporting a wire catenary system. This improved lightning protection system allows for the taller height of the Ares 1 rocket compared to the space shuttle. Pad 39B will be the site...
