The Ares I-X test flight vehicle began its slow roll toward Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center at 12:39 a.m. CDT on October 20.
The 4.2-mile trip is expected to take about eight hours with the rocket arriving at the pad by about 8:30 a.m. CDT, where it will be prepared for its launch targeted for October 27.
The total weight of the Constellation Program rocket, space shuttle mobile launcher platform, and Apollo crawler-transporter is 16 million pounds.
The Ares I-X test flight was designed to provide NASA with an early opportunity to test and prove flight characteristics, hardware, facilities and ground operations associated with its planned Ares I crew launch vehicle. Click on photos to enlarge.
