School Bus in Space!

I love the illustration for this article. Would this get my daughter to school any faster?

Seriously though, if the Ares V flies (fingers crossed), it could give a significant "boost" (sorry) to what we can put into orbit. Larger modules for the ISS, larger telescopes, orbital fueling facilities...

If not the Ares V, then maybe the Falcon IX or the Jupiter Direct or...

Let's just do something, though!

Addendum (January 21, 2009): Another article on the "throw weight" of the Ares V. I've had another idea for the vehicle. Since it can launch eight school buses at a time, we could get rid of The Partridge Family and seven other fake television "rock groups" at once!
