I think we need a "SPACE!" tag to go along with "POLITICS!" and "SCIENCE!".

Done, and added retroactively to some of my submissions

I love when it starts going faster than sound and you can see the shock wave on it.

Why Ares? I realise most of the more appropriate gods have gone, but it's still just asking for trouble.
RockBolt
Ares=Mars, Mars being the ultimate goal for the Constellation program

Anyone notice the "bump" after separation? That's gonna be a problem. The solid booster is probably riding the draft of the wider second stage.
RockBolt
The lower stage's tumble motors fired fine and spun the booster like planned, but the upper stage wasn't expected to go into a flat spin like that. But one hiccup looks like the booster hit the ocean too hard after one of its chutes deflated-

Didn't get a sense of scale until it started to lift off... At first it looked tiny.

That thing is bloody huge, Saturn V huge (though skinny).
