    The Mercury and Gemini programs were the early U.S. efforts in human spaceflight and they were spectacular successes: May American astronaut Alan Shepard went briefly into space, but not into orbit, on the Mercury 3 mission February Astronaut John Glenn spent five hours in orbit on the Mercury 6 mission June Astronaut Edward White made the first U.S. spacewalk on the Gemini.

    This book is a celebration of human ingenuity and imagination. From the work of pioneers like Wernher von Braun, Yuri Gagarin, and Neil Armstrong to the triumphs and tragedies that followed, it reveals the people, science, and technology that have propelled us into the Space Age. This book is intended as a textbook for either introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate courses, or as a reference for those already working on the design of human space systems. It provides supplementary information for related courses such as spacecraft design, space station design, or mission operations. Opening chapters examine human space mission design, hazards and effects of 5/5(1).

    For the book we collated data about everyone who has been to space* and we will aim to keep up-to-date here. You may also be interested in exploring the data, who is in space, a breakdown of astronauts per year, our human spaceflight timeline, or our map of astronaut birthplaces.. You can browse our data for each individual astronaut on Github or, if you prefer, get all the astronaut data as. ince the dawn of spaceflight, advocates of a robust space effort have argued that human activity beyond. earth makes a significant difference in everyday life. a. ssertions abound about the “impact” of spaceflight on society and its relationship to the larger contours of human existence. f. ifty years after the Space age began, it is.
