Bigger and badder

The new Ares rocket will be bigger and more powerful than the Saturn V.

I really love that they are going back to the original designs, both conceptually and physically. The Saturn V was rock solid and I don’t think that anyone (US, Russia, China, ESA, etc) has since then come up with a better, safer, more cost effective platform. But, bigger and more powerful? I didn’t think that was possible… Here’s to hoping that the new rocket fits inside the VAB. :)
