NASA's newest rocket, the Ares I-X, is on the verge of blasting off, but bad weather could delay the flight today.

It's the first step in NASA's effort to return astronauts to the moon. The flight will last two minutes and cost $445 million. NASA managers say they expect to learn a lot from the flight, even if it's for another type of rocket.
