D D a n NASA), said that instead of anther mercury orbit flight, NASA will move ahead with plans for he two-man Gemini spacecraft >rogram. It will practice the space-docking maneuvers that will >e required later for Apollo flights o the moon. To have another Mercury flight, Vebb said, would slow up development of the Gemini program. The irst Gemini flight now is expected early in 1965. In 1958 Mercury was conceived in 1958, after early Soviet and U.S. satel- ttes indicated that perhaps manned space flight was possible An extensive talent search be;an for the men who would fly the new machine. On April 9,1959 the chosen seven were introduced at a press conference: Marine Lt Col. John H. Glenn Jr.; Air Force Maj. Virgil I. Grissom; Navy Cmdr. Alan B. Shepard Jr.; Navy Lt. Cmdr. Malcolm Scott Carpen ;er; Air Force Maj. Leroy Gordon Cooper Jr.; Navy Cmdr. Walter VI. Schirra Jr.; Air Force Maj Donald K. Slayton. All were military pilots with vast jet experience. On Jan. 31. 1961, a chimpanzee named Ham suited up for a bal listic ride scheduled to be the las light before an astronaut was lown over the same route. How ever, the Redstone developed a malfunction which caused Ham to overshoot his target by severa miles. The chimp was recovered sue cessfully but Mercury officials, decided the trouble necessitated an other Redstone flight before a man's life was risked. On March 24, the Redstone iroved it was ready by success :ully boosting a dummy capsule over the ballistic course. Delay But the delay proved costly. On April 12, Russia's Yuri Gagarin orbited around the earth. On May 5, Shepard made a per feet 15-minute Redstone flight in which he soared 115 miles higl and landed in the Atlantic Ocean 302 miles from Cape Canaveral Grissom made an almost iden tical trip on July 21, 1961, bu an escape hatch on his Liberty Bell 7 capsule blew out shortlj after he landed and he had tc swim to safety as the vehicle sant in the sea. Another chimpanzee, E n o s blazed the orbital trail. On No' 29, 1961, he rocketed into an in tended three-orbit flight. But hea ing and control problems de veloped and Enos was returne safely to earth one orbit early. The problems were not con sidered serious, and Glenn wa named to make the first manne orbit flight. After a series of technical ani weather delays extending mor than two months, an Atlas blastec Glenn and his Friendship 7 cap sule into orbit on Feb. 20, 1962 Several technical problems crop ped up, but Glenn completed hi three-orbit mission. Aurora 7 Carpenter flew on May 24, 1962 His Aurora 7 craft developed trou ble which forced him to fly man ually during the critical re-entr maneuver. He overshot his targe by 250 miles, but recovery force found him serenely sitting in a raft near the spacecraft. Schirra was next in line, and on Oct. 3, 1962, he made a near perfect six-orbit "textbook" fligh that provided medics with mor than nine hours of weightles data. That paved the way for Coop er's 22-orbit, 34-hour flight las May 15-16. Because drifting fligh proved so effective, Mercury' original 24-hour goal was extend ed by more than 10 hours. Cooper's Faith 7 flew perfectl; for 19 orbits—during which th pilot slept and performed numer ous scientific and photograph! assignments. Then trouble de veloped which forced him to us manual controls for re-entry— again proving that man can per form in space, even after long ex posure to weightlessness. Tomorrow: Mercury's legacy.
