Greetings from Utah (again...)

I am back in Utah for the week...we are here to document the pouring of inert propellant into the forward segment of the Ares I first stage. The propellant will be poured around the mold I talked about in a previous blog post.

Tomorrow morning at 5AM the folks at ATK Launch Services will begin pouring the first of 47 large vats of the propellant...and that's only for 1 of the 5 Ares I stages.

We have to be there at 4AM and it takes an hour to drive there from here in Ogden, I will be up at 2AM! That is still "tonight" in my book! I'll be sure and takes some pics.

Also, here is a link to the AresTV channel at YouTube. We have uploaded the first 7 Ares Quarterly Reports and number 8 should be up sometime this week. We are just waiting on final approval...
