Project Mercury Goals

Initiated in 1958, completed in 1963, Project Mercury was the United States' first man-in-space program.
The objectives of the program, which made six manned flights from 1961 to 1963, were specific:

To orbit a manned spacecraft around Earth;

To investigate man's ability to function in space;

To recover both man and spacecraft safely.

safely around 1000 miles southeast of the Cape after a two-orbit flight. Scheduled for three orbits,
the spacecraft was returned to earth after two orbits due to the failure of a roll reaction jet and to
the overheating of an inverter in the electrical system.

Description: Pre-Launch Activity on Test 4500. An early morning view of the MR-1
Launch Vehicle with Mercury Capsule #2 as the gantry moves back with liquid
oxygen vapors steaming out as its fuelled for launch.  

MR-l  Launch Attempt: 21 November 1960  - An attempt was made to launch
Mercury-Redstone 1 (MR-1) from the Cape:  This unmanned mission was
unsuccessful because premature cut-off of the launch vehicle engines activated
the emergency escape system when the vehicle was only about 1 inch off the
pad. Engine cut-off was caused by premature loss of electrical ground power to
the booster. The launch vehicle settled back on the pad with only slight damage.
The engine cut off after 1 second and then fell back to the pad from a about 5
inches high but did not explode. This faulty ground-support circuitry had not been
noted on some 60 previous Redstone firings. Since the spacecraft received a
cut-off signal, the escape tower and recovery sequence was initiated and
launched the escape tower but not the capsule. The undamaged spacecraft was
recovered for reuse.
