Lockheed Martin has just released a video showcasing the new Orion space capsule that is going to replace the space shuttle one it is retired.
This picture is just amazing photo from the launch of the Ares 1-X test launch going supersonic.
The Ares 1-X countdown has now stopped at T-4 minutes and they are waiting to see if they can complete the tasks to launch the vehicle in the next 20 minutes.
What a sight it will be when the Ares 1-X in the background lifts off the launch pad with the Shuttle Atlantis also on the pad at the same time.
Well the sun has come up and the Area 1-X is looking ready to fly however due to the delays with the getting the rocket ready it is unlikely that it will launch today as the weather conditions seem to be getting worse.
