After launching from LC-14 at Cape Canaveral 4 days ago, Columbia 12 made an emergency landing in the Gibson Desert in northern Australia. The pilot, Matt Crispin, was soon picked up and brought back to Cape Kennedy. The cause of the forced landing was a malfuntion of the batteries and oxygen supply. This close call will not stop or slow the upcoming Gemini flights, which will further man's exploration of space:

Stardust 2

Posted 09-12-2009 at 08:22 PM by Star Voyager

At Cape Canaveral, Stardust 2 roared off LC-14 atop the mighty Atlas booster. Maj. Tony Nelson, the astronaut of this mission, reported everything in a go condition. Near the end of the ascent, ground equipment indicated a misfire of the Atlas and an early reentry of Stardust 2: ironically in the exact same place as last years Stardust 1 flight. Maj. Nelson was even said to be in Dr. Alfred Bellow's office. This was later dismissed when apperently there was a glitch with the equipment and showed...

Stardust 1

Posted 08-22-2009 at 03:07 AM by Star Voyager

At Cape Canaveral, an Atlas rocket roared off pad 14 carrying Capt. Anthony "Tony" Nelson on the Stardust 1 flight, carrying a modified Project Mercury spacecraft. Unfortunately, the Atlas booster misfired, causing Capt. Nelson to unmaintain his orbit. Ground controllers at the Cape along with Capcom Capt. Roger Healey advised Capt. Nelson to come down over the Pacific recovery zone. However another malfuntion occured with the number 3 retro-rocket, meaning an overshoot of the recovery...

Quicksilver 1

Posted 07-24-2009 at 11:49 PM by Star Voyager

At Cape Canaveral, a Redstone ballistic missile carrying a Mercuy capsule blasted into space from Pad 5. The flight, piloted by Capt. Roger Healey, lasted 15 minutes and 29 seconds. Everyone cheers as the first Quicksilver flight goes up without a hitch, despite speculations of sabotage. Now, everyone awaits as Capt. Tony Nelson get's his shot on the Atlas later next year.
