Ares Flight Test Lapel Pin

Ares I–X is planned to be the first test flight of a vehicle like the Ares I. The test flight objectives are focused on first-stage flight dynamics, controllability, separation of the first and upper stages, ground operations, and first stage recovery. By flying the vehicle through first stage, the test flight will also verify the performance and dynamics of the shuttle’s solid rocket booster in “single stick” arrangement. (The usual shuttle configuration is two rocket boosters with one external fuel tank.)
