Ares Program Will Use An Interesting Escape SystemNASA has announced that it will use a rollercoaster-like escape system for it’s new Ares space program. In the next few years NASA will retire its shuttle program and begin the new Ares rocket program. It will take the best of what NASA has learned from the Apollo and shuttle programs and will take man back to the Moon and eventually to Mars. NASA recently chose a coaster-like escape option for the new launch pads that astronauts will use to reach the final frontier. The Ares rocket will debut in 2010. Coaster-Net.com has the full story. 2 Responses JaMeS November 23, 2009 maybe this is where the arrow fish hook idea ended up? Reply Tom November 24, 2009 Looks fun. I hope (even with the very slim chances) that they will let people who arn’t astronots ride. I’m guessing there is a 1 in 10,000 chance thats happening though. 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
