ESMD Briefing on Ares 1 and Orion

Editor's note: ESMD AA Scott Horowitz held a media briefing at NASA HQ today to discuss the Ares 1 and Orion projects.

Topics covered included Ares 1 performance, weight margins, Orion design, possible changes in booster design, and testing of the Orion spacecraft on both the Ares I - and possibly - the study concept vehicle dubbed by some as "Ares IV".

Horowitz presented several charts that illustrate the Ares 1 design process and weight, performance, and programmatic margin status.

A more detailed article will be posted in the next day or so. Meanwhile, these are the charts Horowitz presented at the briefing.
