    On June 4, the Ares Projects took a few hours away from the hard work of rocket design and testing to hold its annual Ares Awards Ceremony. This ceremony recognizes groups and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the Projects’ progress over the past year. This year’s awards included an overall “Spotlight Achievement” award, presented to the Ares I-X team for successfully accomplishing their flight test on October 28, 2009.

    Group Achievement Awards were presented to 1,000 Ares employees participating in teams across each of the Element Offices, while 50 “Made It Happen” Awards were presented to individuals for their efforts. In her opening remarks, Ares Project Manager Teresa Vanhooser acknowledged and stressed the importance of recognizing team and individual accomplishments. In 2009, Ares saw not only the successful launch of the Ares I-X, but also testing of the first five-segment solid rocket motor, tests of the Ares first stage main parachute cluster, upper stage manufacturing facilities becoming fully operational, and extensive manufacturing work on the J-2X Powerpack 2 and first development engines.
