Progress on the Constellation Program

NASA’s program to produce the next generation of manned rockets has been named Constellation. These rockets are designed to take us back to the Moon.

Work is well underway and highlighted in this week’s Big Picture. My favorite image shows the upgraded lightning supression system at Launch Complex 39.
I am really looking forward to seeing hardware for the Ares V, the big one they are building.
