Project Mercury was America's entry into the manned spaceflight program. When the program began in 1958, the Soviet Union was far ahead of the US in the race for supremacy in space. With immense effort, and in record time, NASA, the newly created spaceflight organization, developed a space transport system with orbital capsule and booster rockets. They used it to send Alan Shepard on a first suborbital "jump" into space in May 1961, and in February 1962 to make John Glenn the first American astronaut to orbit the earth. Nevertheless, the Americans were beaten by the Soviets in the race to put the first man into space. Project Mercury was, however, the foundation for NASA's later success in the race to the moon. All Project Mercury missions are discussed, including details on all craft and the astronauts involved. Superb color, archival images, cutaways and plans are also included.

The race to space between the United States and the Soviet Union captured the popular imagination. On April 12, 1961, the USSR launched cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on a one-orbit flight, making him the first human in space. Three weeks later, American astronaut Alan B. Shepard Jr. flew 116 miles above Earth before splashing down in the Bahamas. Over the next twenty years astronauts emerged as national heroes. This book tells the story of the people and events of Projects Mercury and Gemini with hundreds of unpublished and rare photographs—both color and black-and-white. Unlike other publications, which illustrate the space race with well-known and easily accessible images, this history draws from the authors’ private library of over one hundred thousand (and growing) high-quality photos of the early US manned space program. Collected over a lifetime from public and private sources—including NASA archives, fellow collectors, retired NASA and news photographers, and auction houses—the images document American space missions of the Cold War era more comprehensively than ever before. Devoting a chapter to each flight, the authors also include detailed descriptions, providing new insight into one of America’s greatest triumphs.

1961, Kalter Krieg. Der Wettlauf der beiden Großmächte um den ersten Menschen im Weltall, bildet den Hintergrund für den spannenden Roman. Auf Cape Canaveral herrscht eine hektische Atmosphäre: Die Sowjetunion hat bereits zwei unbemannte Raumschiffe auf Bahnen um die Erde gebracht. Da soll der Kosmonaut Scott Sharper in eine Mercury-Kapsel steigen, um mit einem ballistischen Flug über vierhundert Kilometer einen Sprung in den Weltraum zu wagen. Sharper ist bereit, die einmalige Chance zu nutzen. Betty, seine Frau, bangt um ihn, und sein Freund, Dr. Gilbert, versteht ihn nicht. Gilbert, der technische Leiter der Mercury-Versuchsreihe, hat Bedenken gegen den Flug. Aber Scott Sharper will starten. Soll er mit Rücksicht auf die Ängste seiner Frau seine Chance vergeben? Der Technik vertraut er. Die vorangegangenen Als-ob-Versuche haben geklappt. Ist das noch sein Freund, der mit kleinlichen technischen Erwägungen verhindern will, dass der erste Kosmonaut Scott Sharper heißt? Die letzten Meldungen aus der Sowjetunion spornen zur Eile an ... Der Start glückt – vor dem haben sich jedoch die Ereignisse auf dem Cape weiter zugespitzt.

This title will explore the beginnings of the Space Race, including the development and launch by the Soviet Union of Sputnik, the world's first satellite. America's response was Project Mercury, run by the newly formed NASA. With its goal of putting astronauts into Earth orbit, Project Mercury spawned such household names as John Glen, Alan Shepard, and the other "Mercury 7" astronauts. Will also examine animals in space, and the parallel space exploration programs of the Soviet Union, including the efforts of rocket designer Sergei Korolev. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Abdo & Daughters is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
