Ares 1-X

They’re stacking this baby down at KSC for what is billed as a test flight "later this year," mainly to see how the first stage works. I’ll believe it when it happens. But I hope it flies eventually, before the Dems have spent all the available money on ACORN and pork. Because this is the rocket that will take us back to the moon to build a base where we will build a ship for Mars. Theoretically. In the space game the way NASA plays it, you should never count your space flights until they’re launched.

  1. Yeah. They better hoard the resources for now.

    It’s for sure this rocket is going to cost less than the shuttle-to-nowhere.
