Riassunto: Out of this World: New Mexico & Space Travel People have dreamed of traveling into space for thousands of years, but atmospheric flight by balloon was not achieved until the late eighteenth century. Powered flight took another 120 years to became a reality. Progress toward space travel accelerated rapidly during the twentieth century, with manned orbital flights being achieved less than sixty years after the Wright Brothers' first airplane flight. The amazingly quick development of the United States' space program resulted from the efforts of thousands of people scattered throughout the country. Many crucial experiments took place in New Mexico. Out of this World tells the stories-ranging from hair raising to humorous-of people and animals who worked to develop powerful liquid-fuel rockets, determine the hazards of cosmic radiation, examine the physical and psychological effects of weightlessness, test spacecraft components and safety equipment, devise and implement procedures to evaluate astronaut candidates, search the skies for destinations, scrutinize UFO appearances and possible alien landings on Earth, train astronauts for Moon missions, and-ultimately-construct the first purpose-built spaceport for recreational and commercial flights. New Mexico has provided fertile soil for cultivating space travel for fun and profit.

From the Author: What does New Mexico have to do with space exploration? A lot. Between 1930 and 1971, New Mexico researchers found answers to the most pressing challenges of manned spaceflight, including rocket design and propulsion; effects on the human body from cosmic radiation, prolonged weightlessness, acceleration and deceleration forces; psychological effects of confinement and isolation in a space capsule; and criteria for selection and training of astronauts. Those answers provided essential support for NASA's mission of sending Americans to explore the moon. During the rest of the twentieth century, organizations in the state provided crucial support for the Space Shuttle program and constructed important observatories including the Very Large Array and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey telescope. In the early twenty-first century, New Mexico entrepreneurs and politicians tackled new questions as NASA encouraged the commercialization of the nation's space program and private companies sought to offer space tourism flights to the general public. Construction of Spaceport America positions this state to be a leader in commercial spaceflight for both scientific research and recreation in the decades to come. This book provides an inside look at fascinating people who helped get this country's space program off the ground and who are now leading the way in commercial space travel.
