Creating the Future
Bob Peters, of Kendel Welding and Fabrication, welds part of an internal access support for the Ares I-X upper stage simulator at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.
In 2009, NASA will launch Ares I-X, a test flight for the new Ares I rocket. Ares I will launch astronauts on missions to the International Space Station, the moon and beyond. Several components of the test rocket, including simulators of Ares I's upper stage, service module and spacecraft adapter are being designed and manufactured at the Glenn Research Center.
