I just review my DVD recording of the ARES 1-X launch, what a spectacular launch for the tallest rocket in the world. It was amazing to
see how in 3 years this rocket pass from a paper sheet to a 300 foot rocket.
But it could be the first and the last launch for this amazing 450 millions rocket project. It make's me remember the numerous AMSAT-NA
post AO-40 failed project. I now know why and how things evoluate from the 1960 Redstone/Atlas and Mercury project failed launches to this
brilliant ARES 1-X success... a 500 Hockey mark.
The human factor and knowledge! experience came last as it's often just to confirm the process of bad decisions.
Will ARES 1-X survive? It can at least be a wonderful amateur radio satellite launch opportunity but for this it take's will and
leadership! A very hard to find resources when ITAR is so easy to invoke...
