What's That Looming Over Ares 1-X?

Keith's note: Recently, the gang at Ares 1-X decided to do something to occupy themselves while they wait around for Ares 1-X to launch. They recently decided to kick the can down the road and wait until the Augustine Committee revealed their view with regard to the fate of Ares 1-X and her future siblings.

Well ... another version of that poster has emerged. Instead of an autumn moon rising calmly in the background, a much more ominous figure can be seen looming in the sky, gazing down upon Ares 1-X - with bats swirling before his eyes.
