NASA will add a system engineers equated to shock absorbers to Ares 1 rockets to reduce significant vibrations that could shake Orion spacecraft and astronaut crews during early stages of the flight. Earlier, engineers had determined that at about 115 seconds into the flight, the Ares rocket would vibrate for about 5 seconds, enough [...]
