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 four reusable solid rocket booster segments and the nozzle exit cone for the Ares 1-X rocket were delivered March 19 by the Florida East Coast Railway o the Jay Jay interchange with the NASA Railroad at Kennedy Space Center, Fla. This is the final hardware needed for the Ares 1-X's upcoming test flight this summer. It is manufactured by the Ares 1-X first stage prime contractor Alliant Techsystems Inc, or ATK. The train departed Utah March 13 on the seven-day, cross-country trip to Florida....

On Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a crane completes construction of the third and final tower in the new lightning protection system for the Constellation Program and Ares/Orion launches. Each of the three lightning 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...

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 first major flight hardware of the Ares 1-X rocket arrived in Florida on Nov. 3 to begin processing for its launch in 2009. The upper stage simulator arrived at Port Canaveral by ship. The flight hardware was off-loaded from the barge and taken to high bay 4 of the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The upper stage simulator is made up of eleven individual components which were designed and manufactured by NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland. They represent the...

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...

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...

The roll control system modules for the Ares 1-X rocket arrived in the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The system is designed to perform a 90-degree roll after the rocket clears the launch tower, preventing a roll during flight and maintaining the orientation of the rocket until separation of the upper and first stages. Part of the upper stage simulator, the system is composed of two modules and four thrusters. Ares 1-X is the test vehicle for the Ares 1,...

On Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, a crane removes the lightning mast from the fixed service structure. The mast was used to protect the space shuttle from lightning while at the pad. The new lightning protection systems being built for the Constellation Program and Ares/Orion launches allows for the taller height of the Ares 1 rocket compared to the space shuttle. Pad 39B will be the site of the first Ares vehicle launch, the Ares 1-X test flight, that is targeted for...

The sound suppression water system on Mobile Launcher Platform No. 1 (MLP-1) was tested April 6 at Pad 39-B. The system was modified for the Ares 1-X launch planned for later this year. MLP-1 will next be moved by the crawler transporter to the Vehicle Assembly Building to begin the stacking of the Ares 1-X flight test vehicle.

In the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the upper stage simulator segments are being prepared for the test flight identified as Ares 1-X in July 2009. The upper stage simulator comprises 11 segments, each approximately 18 feet in diameter. The segments will simulate the mass and the outer mold line. The upper stage accounts for nearly one-quarter of the total height of the Ares 1. It will take the Ares 1 on the second phase of its journey from Earth,...
