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.

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...

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...

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.

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,...

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,...
