Griffin Admits Ares 1 Launch Delay - Sort Of

NASA Compares Ares/Orion Targets To Funding, Aviation Week

"The official IOC for an Ares I crew launch vehicle able to send a crew of six to the International Space Station (ISS) in the Orion crew exploration vehicle is March 2015. But NASA has maintained an "aggressive" internal IOC target with a 65 percent level of confidence that falls late in 2013 or early in 2014, Griffin said. "We're going to adjust that internal date and let that slip out a little bit, by how much I don't know yet because it depends on facts not yet in evidence, like what is the magnitude of the CR, and what do we expect to see, and progress we've made to date," he said."
