More Issues for Ares

Old and new studies question safety of Ares I rocket, Orlando Sentinel

"NASA and its contractors building the agency's next-generation moon rocket maintain that it will be the safest, most reliable rocket ever to send humans into space. But several engineering reports sharply question that claim. The latest report to surface was presented four years ago by NASA's Crew Survival Office, a group of engineers at Johnson Space Center specifically charged to find ways to increase astronauts' chances of surviving disaster. It came to light because it was sent to the presidential committee reviewing NASA's plans for human space exploration and was published on its website."
