CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA's new rocket for its back-to-the-moon program is on the launch pad, all set for a test flight Tuesday morning. But rain and clouds could interfere.
Forecasters said Monday there is a 60 percent chance bad weather will stall the launch.
The Ares I-X will fly for just two minutes. The first-stage booster will parachute into the Atlantic and be recovered. The tall, skinny rocket is outfitted with some 700 sensors. It's a $445 million test.
NASA hopes to launch an Ares rocket into orbit with astronauts in 2015. But a panel of experts contends it will be more like 2017. The Ares is supposed to replace space shuttles and eventually fly to the moon. The White House, though, is considering various options.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA is inviting its Twitter followers to the next space shuttle launch.
The shuttle Atlantis was moved to the launch pad Wednesday for its planned liftoff on Nov. 12. The shuttle will deliver more goods to the International Space Station.
For the first time ever, NASA is holding a liftoff Tweetup. The first 100 NASA Twitter followers who sign up will get a tour of Kennedy Space Center and a front-row seat for Atlantis' launch. Registration opens Friday.
NASA has had Tweetups before, but never for a shuttle launch.
NASA says it wants to share the excitement of a shuttle launch with a new audience. Astronauts have been filing Twitter updates since spring, from both Earth and orbit.
