The Jupiter family of Heavy Lift Launch Vehicles was part of the proposed DIRECT Shuttle-Derived Launch Vehicle architecture. It was intended to be the alternative to the Ares I and Ares V rockets which were under development for the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Project Constellation. Some of the major benefits of re-using as much hardware and facilities from the Space Shuttle program as possible to minimize costs, take advantage of the experience with existing hardware and preserve the workforce after the Space Shuttle's retirement.
