One also wonders why the avionics software review, scheduled for August, comes after the 24 July avionics acceptance review. Unless the 24 July review is just the hardware, then shouldn’t there be a final final avionics acceptance event? Odd

A key system, Hyperbola would like to know if the RCS has any related actions outstanding after the Constellation Safety and Engineering Review Panel’s (CSERP) Ares I-X operations and safety hazard assessment review.

With the Norman Augustine led 180-day (from 1 June to 30 November?) Review of US human spaceflight plans to report within 120-days of its first meeting, which is 16 June apparently, it could be October before we hear anything. Just enough time to perhaps even launch Ares I-X. A victory launch or sadly ironic, only time and Augustine’s recommendations can tell?
