Edward Z. Gray, Advanced Manned Missions Director in the Office of Manned Space Flight, asked LaRC Director Charles J. Donlan to prepare a Project [31] Development Plan for the Manned Orbital Research Laboratory, studies for which were already underway at the Center and under contract. This plan was needed as documentation for any possible. Febru The first US manned orbital flight at an orbit miles from the Earth. The second US manned orbital flight which orbited the Earth three times. Aug First four-day flight and first "group" flight with Vostok Berkut (Golden Eagle) Aug The other half of the first "group" flight. Vostok-4 came. The Scientific Context for Exploration of the Moon: Final Report () Apollo Scientific Experiments Data Handbook (NASA TM X, PDF File) ALSEP Termination Report (NASA RP, PDF FIle) Results of the Third U.S. Manned Orbital Space Flight (NASA SP, ). Finally, Arthur C. Clarke's The Exploration of Space, first published in England in and a Book of the Month Club selection in America the following year, persuasively argued the case for orbital space stations and manned lunar and planetary space expeditions, popularizing the notion of .

The Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) (also known as KH Dorian) was a never-flown part of the United States Air Force's human spaceflight program, a successor to the canceled Boeing X Dyna-Soar military reconnaissance space plane project. The project was developed from early United States Air Force (USAF) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) concepts of crewed Crew: 2. Manned Spacecraft Center: Houston, Texas Results of the first U.S. manned orbital space flight, Febru The scientific endeavors of the Apollo 15 mission can be divided into three distinct kinds of activities: (1) the orbital experiments, 12) the package of lunar-surface experiments, and (3) the surface sampling and observation. A sub-orbital spaceflight is a spaceflight in which the spacecraft reaches outer space, but its trajectory intersects the atmosphere or surface of the gravitating body from which it was launched, so that it will not complete one orbital revolution.. For example, the path of an object launched from Earth that reaches the Kármán line (at km (62 mi) above sea level), and then falls back to. Cosmonauts Liakhov and Riumin present the highlights of their day flight on the Salyut-6 space station. Particular consideration is given to the assembly of the KRT radio telescope, the remote sensing of earth resources, crystal-growth experiments, and biomedical : V. A. Liakhov, V. V. Riumin.

A great reference to use when searching for detailed facts about the history of manned space flight programs of both the Air Force and NASA. The detail is wonderful but probably not for a casual reader. I used it for historical background as I prepared a report for NASA. Read more. 2 people found this helpful/5(10). Announced to the pubic in August , the Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) was described as a technology-development platform that would aid manned and unmanned space : Karl Tate. Case Study Report Apollo Project (US) Eva Arrilucea January 2 There was an impressive range of results from the scientific experiments related to lunar orbital science and lunar orbital science. For example, mechanical devices and scientific Place a manned spacecraft in orbital flight around the File Size: 1MB. A study of the metabolic rate associated with a manned orbital flight was conducted in this mission, and the results yielded a metabolic oxygen consumption of 22 pound/hour or standard cubic centimeters (SCC) per minute. Scientific Experiments. It was planned that a series of research experiments would be conducted by Astronaut.
