Parachute technician Betty Smith sews Ares-I parachute suspension lines in the Parachute Refurbishment Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. Ares I is an in-line, two-stage rocket that will transport the Orion crew exploration vehicle to low-Earth orbit. The Ares I first stage will be a five-segment solid rocket booster based on the four-segment design used for the shuttle. As with the shuttle, this booster will fall away when spent, lowered by parachute into the Atlantic Ocean where it can be retrieved for re-use. Photo credit: NASA/Dimitri Gerondidakis
