Video: NASA Promo For Constellation Mission Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
(Hat Tip:

NASA has released another video highlighting their Constellation mission, which features new space suits that will protect them as they venture upon the lunar surface.

Even though it has the backing of Congress, America's space agency has been facing criticism over the Ares I Rocket, which some view as a "failure waiting to happen."

While alternatives have been proposed (such as the Direct Launcher), none have been able to make it beyond the "powerpoint stage" and into reality. Despite the criticisms, NASA is assuring everyone that the Ares I rocket is fine, and will fly towards the heavnes with its bigger brother Ares V.

If successful NASA plans on establishing a few lunar outposts which will hopefully spark humanities interest in retaking the stars (not to mention colonizing every planet, moon and dwarf planet along the way).

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
