ARES 1X COMMEMORATIVE PATCHES This set of three patches celebrates the first launch of the new Constellation Program. Ares 1X will be a test flight of the Ares 1 booster with a mock-up 5th booster segment and upper stage with the same weight and mass of the proposed flight vehicle. This test flight is scheduled for summer/fall of 2009 from Pad B of Launch Complex 39 at the Kennedy Space Center. These designs - based on public domain NASA artwork were created by Tim Gagnon of Titusville, Florida, a graphic and portrait artist with a life long passion for space exploration. His work is on display at the Kennedy Space Center, City Hall in Elmira, NY and the International Space Station.
The patches are known by these names:
- "A" is "Constellation" 5" x 3.5"
- "B" is "First Test Flight" 4" x 4"
- "C" is "Dawn of a New Era" 5" x 3.5"
