In the Assembly and Refurbishment Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the forward skirt extension of the Ares I-X first stage is lowered onto a work stand. The extension will house new, larger parachutes. The three main parachutes each have a 150-foot diameter, compared to the shuttle booster main parachutes, which are 136 feet across.
