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 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...

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.

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...

Technicians in the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida attached the lifting sling to space shuttle Endeavour for rotation and hoisting on April 10. The shuttle then was attached to its external fuel tank and twin solid rocket boosters for its upcoming mission to the International Space Station. Endeavour also will stand by at Kennedy's launch Pad 39B in the unlikely event that a rescue mission is necessary during space shuttle Atlantis' upcoming mission to...

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,...

The external fuel tank for space shuttle Discovery's STS-128 mission to the International Space Station now is at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida for launch preparations. ET-132 arrived at Kennedy May 7 and was taken off its transport barge, Pegasus, and moved into Kennedy's Vehicle Assembly Building. The tank then was lifted into a checkout cell. The tank and twin solid rocket boosters will be attached to Discovery for targeted liftoff Aug. 6.

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...

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,...
