The launch of the Ares 1-X vehicle will be one of the first stages, so to speak of the transition between the shuttle program and the Constellation program as NASA’s human spaceflight vehicle. In this latter program, Ares rockets will lift Orion capsules into space.
At 00:00 UT on the 28th of October, the rocket will be launched. On it, there will be a DVD of films of around sixty seconds in length in which people describe their reasons for supporting spaceflight. If you want to submit such a video, then go to myExploration, which also contains information about the Ares 1-X mission and a quiz with a downloadable badge for those who get it right. Ares 1-X have a blog and can also be found on twitter, on facebook, on flickr and on youtube.
