Ares I-X Shipped to Florida

A segment of the upper stage Ares I-X rocket is transported by a special crane to the cargo hold of the Delta Mariner. Twelve segments were shipped down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida where they will be assembled and sent into space for a test launch in 2009.
