Mission to the Moon

NASA has announced a new mission to the moon which “will use two rockets to send a larger spacecraft” — “the first rocket will carry the lunar lander along with a propulsion stage into Earth orbit.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The second one, the Ares I launch vehicle, will carry the Orion spaceship with the astronauts on board, which will be rendezvous with the lunar lander in orbit and dock.
