August 15: William Bridgeman flew the D-558-II Skyrocket to 79,494 feet, highest altitude attained by a human being (No. 1) research airplane of 30 minutes at Edwards, Calif., with Jean Ziegler as pilot. The Voyager Mars Program grew out of the Apollo Applications Program, between 1966 and 1968, and was planned to send a series of unmanned NASA probes to Mars. Johann Palitzsch observes Halley's comet as predicted by Halley in 1705. The signal is an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP – similar in concept but not in size to what is generated by nuclear detonations. (Tellingly, a massive EMP knocked out cell phones when the Chelyabinsk meteoroid hit.) “Spacecraft transmit a radio signal, so they can receive one that might potentially disable them,” Close notes. “So our question was: do these plasmas emit radio signals, and if so, at what frequencies and with what power?” Now, through experiments she’s led at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Germany, Close has proof that particles that mimic space dust can indeed cause trouble. “We shot femtogram (10-15)-sized dust particles at targets resembling satellites at speeds of 60 kilometers per second,” she explains. “We found that when these particles hit, they create a plasma or quasi-neutral gas of ions and electrons, and that plasma can then emit in the radio frequency range.” These plasma-induced bursts of energy could explain mysteries like the European Space Agency’s loss of its Olympus communication satellite in 1993, Close believes. “Olympus failed during the peak of a meteor shower, but they never detected a momentum transfer, which means whatever hit it wasn’t big enough to be detected mechanically,” she recalls. “And yet this multi-million dollar spacecraft was effectively taken out.” Many other satellites have also failed electronically rather than mechanically.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Calipso American earth weather satellite. Sorry, that option is no longer available. In the meantime, we shall prepare, for the brave sky-travellers, maps of the celestial bodies — I shall do it for the Moon and you, Galileo, for Jupiter.” Kepler knew “what a long road it is from a theoretical concept to its practical achievement, from the simple mention of the antipodes in Ptolemy to Columbus’s discovery of the New World, and even more from the two-lensed instruments used in this country to the instrument with which you, O Galileo, penetrated the very skies” (Koestler, 1968, p. 378).

The military abandoned its use after the Challenger shuttle explosion in the 1980's. The Soviet military favored storable propellants as advocated by Glushko and implemented by Yangel and Chelomei. Its fortunes revised with the establishment of Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in 2005 and orbital launches resumed in 2010. For example, I've been fascinated by space exploration since -- well, since I can remember thinking about it. Several variants of the Myasishchev Buran trisonic intercontinental cruise missile M-42 cruise stage were studied, including a piloted version.
