Riding rockets : the outrageous tales of a space shuttle astronaut by R. Mike Mullane( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1978, the first group of space shuttle astronauts was introduced to the world-twenty-nine men and six women who would carry NASA through the most tumultuous years of the space shuttle program. Among them was USAF Colonel Mike Mullane, who, in his memoir Riding Rockets, strips the heroic veneer from the astronaut corps and paints them as they are-human. Mullane's tales of arrested development among military flyboys working with feminist pioneers and post-doc scientists are sometimes bawdy, often comical, and always entertaining. He vividly portrays every aspect of the astronaut experience, from telling a female technician which urine-collection condom size is a fit to hearing "Taps" played over a friend's grave. He is also brutally honest in his criticism of a NASA leadership whose bungling would precipitate the Challenger disaster-killing four members of his group. A hilarious, heartfelt story of life in all its fateful uncertainty, Riding Rockets will resonate long after the call of "Wheel stop."

Riding rockets : the outrageous tales of a space shuttle astronaut by R. Mike Mullane( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On February 1, 1978, the first group of space shuttle astronauts, twenty-nine men and six women, were introduced to the world. Among them would be history makers, including the first American woman and the first African American in space. This assembly of astronauts would carry NASA through the most tumultuous years of the space shuttle program. Four would die on Challenger. USAF Colonel Mike Mullane was a member of this astronaut class, and Riding Rockets is his story -- told with a candor never before seen in an astronaut's memoir. Mullane strips the heroic veneer from the astronaut corps and paints them as they are -- human. His tales of arrested development among military flyboys working with feminist pioneers and post-doc scientists are sometimes bawdy, often hilarious, and always entertaining. Mullane vividly portrays every aspect of the astronaut experience -- from telling a female technician which urine-collection condom size is a fit; to walking along a Florida beach in a last, tearful goodbye with a spouse; to a wild, intoxicating, terrifying ride into space; to hearing "Taps" played over a friend's grave. Mullane is brutally honest in his criticism of a NASA leadership whose bungling would precipitate the Challenger disaster. Riding Rockets is a story of life in all its fateful uncertainty, of the impact of a family tragedy on a nine-year-old boy, of the revelatory effect of a machine called Sputnik, and of the life-steering powers of lust, love, and marriage. It is a story of the human experience that will resonate long after the call of "Wheel stop."

An Experimental Investigation of Methods of Suppressing the Unsteady Torque Exerted on the Upper Turning Mirror of an Aircraft Mounted Coelostat Turret( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Various methods of reducing the unsteady torque exerted on the upper turning mirror (UTM) of a coelostat turret were experimentally evaluated. The effect of an aft fairing and the turret aperture on the pressure distribution across the turret was also measured. Areas of flow separation were determined from oil flow patterns. A coelostat model with a turret diameter of five inches and capable of rotating 120 degrees in azimuth was wall mounted in a transonic wind tunnel. Data was collected for Mach numbers of .7, .85, and .95. Passive methods, consisting of external fairings and active methods, consisting of blowing and suction, were employed to reduce UTM torque
