Overshoots The Landing Area BULLETIN CAFE CANAVERAL (UPI) —\ rescue plane lias sighted astronaut Scott Carpenter riding in a life raft beside his Auror.j-7 spacecraft, space officials reported today. CAPE CANAVERAL (UPI) Si oil Carpenter soared three times in orbit around the earth today but apparently overshot l;he planned sea landing area and lost niclio contact with tracking stations. Space officials, said it might be an hour before search aircraft spotted (he I'/rion Aurora-7 in tb.e vastness of the Atlantic nearly 1,000 miles southeast of here. The 37-year-old astronaut began hji flight, a fact-finding missiion in space, at 7:45 a.m. COT, after the smoothest countdown in the history of the Mercury man-in- orbit program. At about ,12:18 p.m., braking rockets to bring his craft down from orbit were fired as he approached the southwest coast of 11 e United Stales. He had reported everything aboard the craft in good condition for the fiery descent through the atmosphere to, splash down in the Atlantic. As expected, radio contact was lost du.ring the descent because of ionbiation of the atmosphere by the 3,BOO-degiree heat generated by air friction. Officials concluded when contact wa:> not quickly regained that Carpenter's craft, had come in at an angle which meant he had oversho': the mark. They estimated the overshot at about 200 miles. Plane;! with para-medics aboard were dispatched to search for the draft, presumably bobbing in the Aflaniic, There was a moment during his second orbit when ground monitors feared, it might be necessary to limit his flight to two orbits. Ifucl Supply Threat .This iiear was caused By indications that the fuel supply for the spacecraft's jet controls was being used up too rapidly. Officials ordered Carpenter by radio to switch to hand control of the j«ts to conserve the supply. Depletion of control fuel forced termination after two orbits of the orbital flight made last November by Enos, the chimpanzee astronaut. John H. Glenn Jr. alsojnormj). his orbit, At one point the cabin temperature hit 102 degrees. Asked whether lie was comfortable, he Maid: "I don't know. I'm feeling warm and perspiring, but I'm :iot really uncomfortable." He wore an air - conditioned suit. Sp.ice officials gave the go- ahead for orbit No. 3 after Carpenter reported that both he and the spacecraft were in "good condition. "JUs( Like Siiowflakes" Carpenter saw the luminous blobs which Glenn reported sighting at sunrise over the YVest Coast during his flight. 'He said they "looked 'just like snowflake:!." Some of them, he said, were going faster than the spacecraft. Glsnn had likened them to fireflies. Carpenter's craft apparently used the hydrogen peroxide jet fuel faster than Glenn's. An official said that two hours after Glenn look off, his craft still had 80 pe:: rail of the supply for the aulonialic control system and all of th<> propellanl lor the manual syslem. A'fttir Ihe same two-hour period Carpenter's craft had only 51 per cent Df the fuel left in its automatic system and 63 per cent in the manual. It is vitally necussary to have the craft in (he right position when th> braking rockets fire (o bring it down, lherwi.se, it would be propelled into • a higher orbit from which, the rockets once fired, it could nut be brought down. The craft also must be (Minted right to keep it from burning up from air friction during ils descent through the atmosphere. At Ihe start of liis second trip around, Carpenter released a multi-colored balloon, the size of. a beaohball, from what space officials called his "orbital laboratory." The object was to find out what colors are most visible in space. This will help when the time- comes in the U.S. lunar project to couple spacecraft and rockels in oribit. Spacesuit Heats Up At one point in his' first orbit, sensing instruments: reported over Australia that Carpenter's spacesuit was heating up a little above experienced difliculty with his controls in his flight Feb. 20. But he was: able to complete fhe But Carpenter quickly corrected this by stepping up -(he flow of the fluid in the suii. He stheduldd three trips around (he;reportjd Ihe temperature dropped from 32 to about TO degrees. Instrument; had indicated his body temperat ire went above 100 de- earth. Carpenter, flying at 17,532 miles an hour, completed his first orbit at about; 9:19 a.m. and his second at about 10:47 a.m. Mad<! Several Experiments Throughout both orbits, Carpentor performed experiments designed to pile up information of use to astronauts in lunar and planetary missions of the future. For the first time in the history of. manned space flight, he ate solid food — bite - sized snacks which, he said, went down all right despite, the space condition at weightlessness which tends to make o'aject float. He said they wore a little crumbly, however. On bo Hi of the first two orbits, the temperature inside Carpenter's spacesuit rose somewhat over Australia when his Aurora-7 spacecraft was at its apogee of 1(|4 miles—the highest altitude oC grees. But that turned out to be false. Said Carpenter, "I feel very comfortable." The w£.y tilings were going, officials were strengthened in their hope that, the next manned space flight could be lengthened to six or seven orbits, with recovery in the Pacific near Midway instead of the ABantic. Later on, Mercury flights will be stepped up to IE orbits. These will 1>> j'ollowed, hie next year or early in 1964, with two-man flights uj> to a week in Gemini spacecraft. Less articulate than Glenn, who kept ua .1 fairly steady patter of talk loavened with humor, the tough ind wiry Carpenter skimped m words.
