NASA and industry partners lit up the Utah sky on Sept. 10, 2009, with the initial full scale, full-duration test firing of the first motor for the Ares I rocket. Engineers will use the measurements gathered from the test to evaluate thrust, roll control, acoustics and motor vibrations. This data will provide valuable information as NASA develops the Ares I and Ares V vehicles. Another ground test is planned for summer 2010.



This is one powerful rocket, look at the rear hills, green to dead.

Hi, rocket fans.

? If that rocket is blowing East or West, it could make days longer or shorter,
by slowing or accelerating the earth ??? B-)

? Or if blowing to the North or South, it could raise or lower the intensity
of the seasons, by changing the angle of the earth's axe, relative to the sun ?

The last BIG tsunami did ! !

2/3rds the temperature of the surface of the sun, brought to bear on the surface of the planet through sheer technological prowess. Now that's inspiring

Hi D.E.M. You are right with your temperature comment ! B-)

But we DID get the sun's temperature ON earth, with the "H" bomb. . .
The "H" bomb IS the sun at work: H being fused. . .

And we know that lightnings, and sparks we made are even hotter. . .
