Wanted to let you all know that the Agency FTRR is over, and we are unanimously go for launch. Was a remarkably smooth meeting today. All of the verification paper is closed (!), and no outstanding technical issues. The team has done a remarkable job. My thanks to you and your folks that helped us get here.

And, wow, does our vehicle look nice on the pad!


Great job, Team Ares!
