NASA’s Human Exploration Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD) Risk and Knowledge Management Office publicly released a new online module on the lessons learned from Ares I-X.
On October 28, 2009, the Ares I-X Flight Test Vehicle (FTV) successfully launched from Launch Complex 39B at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Designed as the first test flight for NASA’s Ares I crew launch vehicle, the Ares I-X FTV launch provided a wealth of data and lessons learned for the development for future NASA missions.
The Ares I-X project overcame many unique engineering, management, and process-level challenges, and ultimately met all of its primary objectives. The online module contains a narrative report, video interviews, knowledge-based risks, and related documents and videos about lessons learned from Ares I-X.
