Milestones and Delays

The good news is that components of the Ares 1X test vehicle have been delivered to Kennedy Space Center and the test launch appears to be still on the schedule. The bad news is that the test of the escape capability for the Orion capsule was delayed (and I haven't seen any news fresher than this to indicate that it has since happened).

Addendum (July 8, 2009): Launch abort system tested! I wonder if they named this one Little Joe II?
