"This is where we wrap the entire vehicle together to say we have a sound design from stem to stern," [Steve] Cook said in a Wednesday evening teleconference. "It's really a big step in our journey to launch."
While I also have some Shuttle support duties, Ares I development takes up the majority of my time so it is cool too see it in the news. We have been having component level PDRs (Program Design Review) for the last few months so the vehicle level PDR is a pretty big deal.
Steve Cook, the Ares I Program Manager, actually works here in Huntsville and we a having an Ares I PDR celebration on Friday. Hooray for free BBQ!
