NASA Ares I Moon Rocket - Open-Source Contract With Boeing - Popular
The “brains” of the Ares I rocket that will send four astronauts back to
the moon sometime in the next 12 years will be built by Boeing, NASA
announced today—but the specifications will be open-source and
non-proprietary, so that other companies can bid on future contracts.
The avionics unit will provide guidance, navigation and control for the
launch rocket, which will carry the Orion crew vehicle into Earth orbit.
