NASA's New Ares 1-X Rocket is now fully stacked


Even though the rocket is now stacked and sitting on the mobile launch platform in Kennedy Space Center's VAB, there is still a lot of testing and prep work to be done before it's ready to roll out to the pad. Over the weekend (Aug. 29-30) the rocket underwent two days of modal testing to make sure it's ready to stand up to the environments it's about to find itself in. [From the Ares 1-X Blog]
