The Ares 1-X test rocket has been successfully launched. Contrary to a comment I made in an earlier post, the first stage is a set of solid rocket engines, not liquid oxygen and fuel. Keep in mind, the stack that lifts off here is 325 feet tall- over 100 meters! Awesome!
For more information, see NASA's Ares 1-X web page.
