NASA animation of the Ares I and V vehicles. Also known as the crew and cargo launch vehicles. These are the proposed vehicles to
supersede the Space Shuttle program which ends in 2010. This animation depicts the proposed lunar exploration mission scenario..
I'm excited that we are moving away from the Space Shuttle program in 2010 and moving into a program that could start a new era of space
exploration, in which new milestones in human space flight can be achieved.
My only wish is that we could adopt one space program where many nations could contribute technology and funding. The Space Station is a fine example
how this could someday be possible. A "Space Race" could be viewed as healthy, but I think much more ground could be gained if everyone could work
together under one program instead of many programs racing to see who can get it done first.
