I ran across this website that has a lot of images, photos, and links related to Project Constellation (Ares, Orion, and even the concepts dropped along the way).

Page 1: A Visual History of NASA's Project Constellation:

Page 2 - Actual hardware:

I have my reservations about the whole thing, which I will not get into. But I figure several people would find those pages interesting to see, and perhaps be useful.

I did find it interesting that they have used the same sort of roll pattern for the Abort Test Capsule (Boilerplate) that the Apollo's had for Pad Abort tests and Little Joe-II flights. Well, I had seen photos of that last year, thought I'd point that out.
