Ares 1 Criticism

Aero-News Network has a summary of the criticism NASA's planned Ares 1 vehicle is receiving. It is reported that its thrust oscillation is much worse than was expected. This is the criticism Mike Griffin was hinting may be coming from Lockheed Martin.

He did say, however, he welcomes private enterprises interested in developing economical ways to place humans in orbit and NASA would use those services and focus on the Moon.
