NASA is a step closer to the first test flight of the rocket that will send humans on their way to the moon as part of the agency's Constellation Program. The simulated crew module and launch abort system, whcih will complete the nose of the Ares 1-X rocket, arrive at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., Jan. 28. The flight will be an important step towards verifying analysis tools and techniques needed to develop Ares 1, NASA's new crew launch vehicle.

The final newly manufactured segment specifically designed for Ares 1-X test rocket, the frustum, arrived at NASA Kennedy Space Center's Assembly and Refurbishment Facility on Friday. Looking somewhat like a giant funnel, the frustum's major function is to transition the primary flight loads from the upper stage to the first stage. Weighing in at approximately 13,000 pounds, the 10-foot-long frustum is composed of two aluminum rings that are attached to a truncated conic section. The large...

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.

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.
