Today's Video - Profiling the Ares Launch Vehicle

The Ares Launch Vehicles, The Futures Channel

"Imagine a rocket the size of a small skyscraper. Now imagine shooting it into the air with so much force that it goes from zero to a thousand miles an hour in less than a minute. What kind of engines can generate that much thrust? And why is that rocket built in stages? Go inside Marshall Space Flight Center to meet members of the Ares Rocket team who can answer those questions and more."

Editor's note: Whether you are pro-Ares or just wish it would go away this 9+ minute provides a good profile on Ares.
Frank's note: How many readers think we will ever see an Ares V built and launched?
