  • NASA successfully tests stage 1 Ares rocket motor

    Some thunder was heard today in Promontory, Utah. NASA and ATK successfully tested the stage 1 motor of the Ares 1 rocket, the launch vehicle that will be replacing the Space Shuttle. Here's some cool pics and vids on NASA's website:

    I had a chance to check out the rocket display that's open to the public at ATK in early July. I'll be reporting about it in my ongoing trip report here:

    This video is excellent:

    I guess they burned it for the same amount of time during a launch (just over 2 minutes)

      It was indeed very impressive to watch. My boss's wife's father is an engineer at ATK and we almost got to go up and watch it in person. That would have been awesome. The video will just have to do.

      It amazes me that we have been able to think things up like this. Rocket motors capable of these insane amounts of power. Systems of sensors to monitor and test them, etc. It is all so incredible and wonderful.

      Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
