    Project Mercury was America’s first human spaceflight program. The project was named after the Roman god of travelers — Mercury. The program began in and ended in Project Mercury was an important part of the “Space Race.” The Space Race was a space exploration competition between the United States and the former Soviet Union. Project Mercury (Book): Hamilton, John: This title will explore the beginnings of the Space Race, including the development and launch by the Soviet Union of Sputnik, the world's first satellite. America's response was Project Mercury, run by the newly formed NASA. With its goal of putting astronauts into Earth's orbit, Project Mercury spawned such household names as John Glen, Alan Shepard.

But black-and-white photos inside the book are prints, some of which are poor. For sharp, inexpensive color photos to supplement Catchpole's book, I used PROJECT MERCURY, a pocket guide published by Apogee.

Also, Catchpole's index has only page numbers, no subtopics, and it was incomplete, as was the list of by: 3. Overall “Project Mercury” was an interesting read and I enjoyed learning of the numerous details behind America’s early endeavors to ultimately put a man on the moon.

I’ve got “Project Gemini” on my book shelf already Project Mercury book am looking forward to Mr. Reichl’s next installment in his America in Space Series/5(18). Eugen Reichl's book Project Mercury is a thorough, very detailed look at the early stages of America's space race. The amount of information here is absolutely incredible/5.

Project Mercury will offer a developmental resume of the first American manned spaceflight programme and its associated infrastructure, including accounts of space launch vehicles.

Although Dr. Baker wrote extensively about the hardware and engineering of Project Mercury in his tome "The History of Manned Spaceflight," this is the most detailed book I've ever seen on the spacecraft, official NASA publications excepted.

The objectives of the Mercury Project, as stated at the time of project go-ahead, were as follows: (1) Place a manned spacecraft in orbital flight around the earth. (2) Investigate man's performance capabilities and his ability to function in the environment of space.

(3) Recover the man and the spacecraft safely. This book is exactly as it says on the front, basically a reproduction of an actual Project Mercury manual. As such, this is more an engineering/flight crew document than for a casual reader who may find the content dry, complex and confusing in large part/5(11).
