WASHINGTON -- NASA is developing new spacecraft, the Ares rockets and Orion crew capsule, to deliver astronauts to the International Space Station and send them on their way to the moon. The first test flight of the spacecraft, known as Ares I-X, is scheduled to launch in spring 2009. The latest information about this launch is now available at:

Thanks Mr. Gray. I was just reading about this rocket the other day, but I didn't think that they were expecting a test flight until around 2011 or so, so this is good news to me!

btw: Thanks to Talamasca, I have no idea how I missed this over at the base......

Tal and Fab are good at monitoring these announcements,

I always make a mental note and promptly forget to keep an eye on them...

:D
