Ares 1X Launched


The Ares 1X launch today was very exciting, in spite of the uncertainty surrounding the future of the Constellation program.  I think the thing to focus on is that the capability exists to get humanity into space, and beyond Low Earth Orbit!  The funding and logistics and politics and global economic situation are complicated, but I believe those challenges are not insurmoutable.  Check out the Review of U.S. Human Space Flight Plans Committee Summary Report.
