Glenn, Jr. (Springer Praxis Books).Reviews: 5. This flight involved a chimpanzee, Ham, being placed through a ballistic trajectory flight.

During the flight, Ham had to perform a continuous and discrete motor task that had been learned on the ground. Mercury-Atlas 5, the second chimpanzee flight, was launched on Novem   Named Project Mercury in November of that year, the philosophy was "to use known technologies, extending the state of the art as little as necessary." Final preparation for an orbital flight lasting as long as three days was already begun.

In Novemberthe final test flight saw Enos the chimpanzee completing two orbits before being. According to Henry, the results of the two animal flights (Ham and Enos) showed that: (1) Pulse and respiration rates, during both the ballistic (AIRS) and the orbital (MA-5) flights, remained within normal limits throughout the weightless state.

It was not until January that the "Results of the Project Mercury Ballistic and Orbital Chimpanzee Flights" (SP) was published. This rare document provided an account of the suborbital flight of "Ham" and the orbital flight of "Enos".

An examination of the history of the major flight tests will show that the basic objectives of the Mercury Project were achieved 3 1/3 years after official project approval, with the completion of Astronaut John Glenn's successful orbital flight on Febru Subsequently, Astronaut Carpenter completed a.

Early Mercury flights While the human Mercury program received most of the attention, the first living creature to fly on Mercury was not a test pilot, but a chimpanzee.

Many readers will doubtless be astonished to learn that animals were being fired aloft in U.S. and Soviet research rockets in the late s. In fact most people not only believe that the Russian space dog Laika was the first canine to be launched into space, but also that the high-profile, precursory Mercury flights of chimps Ham and Enos were the only primate flights conducted by the United 3/5(1).

Although there had been rumors that NASA in the very beginning of Project Mercury had intended to launch each astronaut on a suborbital mission before beginning orbital Atlas flights, they only purchased eight Mercury-Redstone boosters, one of which was damaged in the unsuccessful MR-1 launch and not reused, and another used for the MR-BD flight (the original schedule was for one uncrewed Mercury-Redstone flight, one chimpanzee flight.

To quote A History of Project Mercury: Ham's flight on MR-2 was a significant accomplishment on the American route toward manned space flight. Now the Space Task Group knew that even with some hazardous malfunction it might reasonably hope to complete a manned ballistic mission successfully.

This is the third book out of six planned to cover every single Mercury mission separately. First US orbital flight of John Glenn is covered in great detail (as are the two suborbital missions of Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom in previous two books) from the preparation through the fligt itself - highlighting the drama of the suspected heatshield premature separation - to the safe landing Reviews: 1.

The flight of Friendship 7 has gained new resonance thanks to the movie Hidden Figures. Curator Michael Neufeld examines the movie through the lens of a space historian. Neufeld admits that the movie deviates from history often, but the movie was good, well-acted, inspirational, and important.

The movie, and the book it is based on, are destined to change our national narrative about the space.James P. Henry and John D.
