The stationary firing of the Ares five-segment solid motor, known as Development Motor 1, or DM-1, was scrubbed on Thursday, August 27 with twenty seconds left in the countdown.
Our investigation is still ongoing so we will not be able to test tomorrow. We will continue to update [reporters] as we know more. Right now we are targeting no earlier than Tuesday [Sept. 1]. By choosing to scrub today we have not compromised any of the components and preserved the ability to execute a successful test and capture all of the data. Tuesday gives us enough time to determine root cause and prepare the motor for test.
