Talking about Space shuttle successor completes crucial flight test – space – 28 October 2009 – New Scientist


Well done NASA. 

Quote:  Space shuttle successor completes crucial flight test – space – 28 October 2009 – New Scientist

The success of this test should help to silence the critics of the Ares program.

Whilst, I still believe that this is the wrong model for human space flight longer term. See NASA at a Crossroads. As a short term capability gap filler this "rocket stack" will have to do. Longer term, the model which is being developed in the private sector, may well prove to be the most useful.
