I love the idea of lets light er up! I am also hopeful that the test provided good data on the design and operation of the rocket. It would seem to be a waste to not have tested it, perhaps more was spent on the test but was it a lot more or just a little more (that yielded solid test data)? The bigger question should be: What are the long term plans for all the programs; What is the long term direction for NASA? If their mission is changed too often it is hard to see what good they could accomplish. I say give it shot!

Our understanding is that this was a test of a larger, new-generation solid rocket. It reminded me of the Constellation launch test late last year that appeared designed at least in part to generate public support for a moon-rocket program that some in NASA must have know was on the chopping block.

I think it was more of the thought "Lets light this sucker"

"...was the most heavily instrumented solid rocket motor test in NASA history. More than 760 instruments measured 53 test objectives." It doesn't say what the test cost. If that was a solid booster that was already fabricated for the canceled program, and the sensors and electronics were done, then perhaps the science and engineer captured from the tests were worth the money.
