Teamwork Brings About Successful Ares I-X Launch NASA

Outstanding teamwork was the theme of the Ares I-X postlaunch news conference as the successful flight test was discussed.
“I can’t say enough about this team,” said Doug Cooke, associate administrator for the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “They’ve been together probably a little over three years now, and they went from a concept to flying this vehicle in that period of time, which is the first time this has been done by a human spaceflight team in a long time.”
