Rocket Glass Exclusive Collectable - Ares 1 DM1 Rocket Test 2009 - ATK Aerospace
The extreme and intense heat that burns from the back of a rocket when it's launched into space is a sight to see. The sheer power of one of the most recently developed rockets, Ares 1-X, is on display in the Rocket Glass Exclusive Collectable. The shard of glass, encased in protective Lucite, was created when the tremendous heat from the Ares 1-X first rocket burn tests turned sand at the bottom of the launch site into glass. Owning this piece of space history will put you in exclusive company, as it was previously available only to astronauts, NASA executives, political figures, special guests and members of the rocket's development team.
