Description


Scott Carpenter's copy of the "Project Mercury Candidate Evaluation Program" report, prepared by the Wright Air Development Center in December 1959, 133 pages, 8.25 x 10.75, signed on the cover in black ballpoint, "Carpenter," with the editor of the report signing and inscribing to Carpenter below: "To Scott: with pleasant memories of difficult times and complete confidence in our recommendations, Dr. Wilson." A portion of the report abstract reads: "A battery of physiological, psychological, and biochemical tests was performed by the Aerospace Medical Laboratory on he candidates for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Project Mercury. These tests yielded new information on the physiological limitations of high transverse g, methods of recording anthropomorphic measurements, effects of noise and vibration on humans, body responses to heat stress, frequency of heart murmurs during heat stress, physiological and biochemical responses occurring during 1-hour MC-1 tests, physiological responses during vigorous exercise, and interpretation of psychological and psychiatric testing. Data on candidate performance are presented." This uncommon report features numerous fantastic images of Mercury astronauts undergoing testing. In fine condition.
