Harvey Allen, US aeronautical engineer Featured Apollo Missions Print

Harvey Allen, US aeronautical engineer

Harvey Allen (1910-1977). Portrait of the US aeronautical engineer and director of NASA's Ames Research Center, Harry (Harvey) Julian Allen, standing in front of a blackboard with his Blunt Body Theory equations. Allen is best known for this Blunt Body Theory of re-entry aerodynamics. This theory permitted successful recovery of orbiting spacecraft and led to the design of ablative heat shields that protected the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronauts as their space capsules re-entered the Earth's atmosphere. He served as Center Director of the NASA Ames Research Center from 1965 to 1969. His techniques are still used to this day. Photographed at Ames Research Center, California, USA, in 1957


Apollo 1 crew in training, 1960s Featured Apollo Missions Print

Apollo 1 crew in training, 1960s

Apollo 1 crew in training. NASA astronauts Roger Chaffee (1935-1967), Edward White (1930-1967) and Gus Grissom (1926-1967) in the Apollo command module during training for the Apollo 1 mission. It was during a launch pad testing session, similar to this test, that the three astronauts were killed on 27 January 1967. An electrical short-circuit ignited the flammable high-pressure 100 percent oxygen atmosphere. Changes were made following an investigation. The Apollo programme resumed with several unmanned flights, with the first manned flight (Apollo 7) taking place on 11 October 1968. Numerous memorials have been dedicated to the three astronauts


Apollo-Soyuz Project crew, 1975 Featured Apollo Missions Print

Apollo-Soyuz Project crew, 1975

Apollo-Soyuz Project crew in July 1975. This was a joint project between the USA and the USSR (flags at left and right). The Soviet cosmonauts (green suits), commander Alexei Leonov (born 1934, back row, right) and engineer Valery Kubasov (born 1935, front row, right), launched in a Soyuz capsule. The US astronauts (orange suits), led by Thomas Stafford (born 1930, back row), with the pilots Donald (Deke) Slayton (1924-1993, front row, left) and Vance Brand (born 1931, front row, centre), launched in an Apollo capsule. The two capsules successfully docked in Earth orbit (shown by the model at lower centre). The larger Apollo capsule is at left, while the smaller Soyuz capsule is at right. The mission took place in July 1975
