just wanna share my pride and joy.....HURRAYYY, ARES 1X test flight has been a huge success! that mean astronauts in ORION nef has nothing to fear about, the abortion system is perfectly fine tuned and worked flawlessly. hats off to NASA engeneers, they know their business, ARES1X is finally ready to take the relay fron the honnest shuttle who has served the space station well.

now it's time to go forward and carry on the space exploration. next step might be the build of a moon station seeking mars invading lolol.

the space program is probably the greatest achievement for the whole humanity, few peoples fully understand we need to do this for the future of humanity, medecine, military, science get huge benefits from the space program.....again CHEERS and THANKS to all NASA staffs, scientists , astronauts....all peoples devoted to space research.

NASA and vets of wars are the 2 things that make me so proud of this country.

Eh, I guess I'm kinda spoiled because I can just look east and see any of the shuttle launches I want. They all look the same after a while.

I was two feet away from the shuttle numerous times when it did land at Edwards AFB in the late 80's. It's not that gleaming white space plane we all know and love to watch when it comes back. It's pretty roasted, sooty lookin and numerous tiles missing. It looks pretty beat......................markerdown

you're lucky, i'd like to get back there to see one of the last shuttle missions launch before ARES1X take place.

i've seen one of the SATURN V launch from COCO BEACH in 1972 (lol i was 10 YO ATM) and i got a tour of the cap canaveral with the old mercury nef in display as well as a polaris rocket ,SATURN V, and many other rockets.....was an impressing tour, i'm looking forward to get back there ASAP trust me, i'm a huge fan of everythings related to NASA.
