There were no injuries In the spectacular accident here last October. A year and a half earlier an Atlas missile knifed into the sky in the first effort to orbit an unmanned space capsule. "She looks Hke a good one," an observer remarked. Others thought so too. FUN JUST REGISTER NOTHING TO BUY Need Not Be Present to Win!

Erupts In Flame instantly, the might missile erupted in a ball of fire 15,000 feet in the air. Chunks of flaming debris showered to the ground, some falling on the blockhouse which protected missilemen at the launch site. The space capsule was blasted free by a rocket escape system and was dropped undamaged into the ocean by parachute. There were no injuries. That these two unsuccessful launchings were not further marred by deaths or injuries can be attributed in large measure to what scientists here call the impact prediction system. The complex system provides the range safety officer, the man who must trigger the "destruct" switches if necessary, with information on where the missile would impact if fuel were to be cut off during powered flight. The system also enables recovery forces to be on the way to the scene even before the nose cone impacts. Trains Safety Officers As the nation's pioneer launching site, the spaceport here helps bases and scores of missilemen from operational bases and military schools pass through here for observation and training. Safety officers work closely with the launch agencies. The launches indicate what they would like to attain and then it is determined whether it can be done safely. Charts are drawn covering.the entire course of a planned launch. The charts show such things as distances from populated areas, islands along the route and emergency procedure. During the launch itself several officers besides the range safety officer man various instruments to observe plotted flight data. Because of these safety meas ures the potentially dangerous missile program—which involves explosives, great pressures, high voltage and super-inflammable fuels—has a safety record that outshines that of many other in dustries.
