"In love with it. Man I loved grilling. So that's probably where some of the Lai fire foundations are laid. I. What do you recall from primary education years like it was school something that's easy for you. As you're getting through elementary middle school, high school student are you and what are you into? I was pretty good student We moved around a little bit as dad was with the government. The Blueberry Factory shut down after the blueberry season in May in some to. Inspect Blueberry factory in a non blue. Orange juice. Factory. Tropicana. Factory in Bradenton Florida so we we lived in Sarasota. And that's One Thousand Fifty nine I think moved to Sarasota and I was pretty good student I didn't I didn't have to study a lot and got pretty good grades. I enjoyed school I mean. It was you know stimulation. You'd mentioned that you are also football player and a swimmer you most competitive than at this point or did you go in twin or play football at the next level? I was undersized for football player but I loved it and I and I I just love throwing my body at i. in Highschool later on, we moved across the across the state to Merritt Island which was This was in the at the start of the space program Dad left the USDA and took a job with a stockbrokerage and they sent him to cocoa Florida in Nineteen fifteen, nine, hundred, sixty, which I think it was fifty, eight or fifty nine when rush was launched sputnik and We started the space program right around that time and with the vanguard and. All of the engineers, the scientists, the best and brightest from Boeing and northrop and. Bell they all moved into this uninhabited little fishing area Cocoa Cocoa Beach Merritt Island Melbourne and what later became satellite beach named after the missile. program. And the brand new junior high opened up our high school Merritt Island. High School. And I I was both on the swimming team in the football team. What was the food scene like for you growing up otherwise, you'd mentioned your dad stay. You said, your mom was Okay Cook. Didn't sound like she was necessarily studying the kitchen fire in a good way but were there any? Were there any fan secret family recipes or grandparents that came around or anything like that? I remember MOM's lasagna. And but we were we were in the Co. we're in Florida I ate seafood dad and I wear into fishing. and. At one point we moved into a house that was right on. The intercoastal waterway. So I walk out my backyard, stand on the SEAWALL. Take a piece of cake strings and tie a chicken neck to it. Throw it out into the water and in a few minutes I feel tugging on it and pull it in and I've had a head crabs and I would just. Scoop them up in a net and it was paid to the ask getting them out of the net and then throw them up on the lawn and I could get a dozen of them in an hour easily and we just boil them up and dad that always had a boat a as long as I remember had a boat little runabout venture. Chris Craft something we could all sleep in. and We go out off entity Atlantic into the Gulfstream and fish and come home. Gosh I have a picture I didn't think they bring it up of the holding up a Muhima he a sixty pound fish and those were wonderful. We'd so I if I stayed on the coast, I'd be fish not meet. It is the crab illegal to catch like that back then or no? I don't think there was anything illegal about and I mean it was just this was rural Florida I. Don't know they were you know any legal restrictions or anything? We just we boil up crabs. Fantastic. Probably still legal were you employable back then through high school? Do you have any odd jobs? While here. This is the good story. This is. Through high school and College. I took a job as the lifeguard. At the Sheraton Hotel on Cocobeach. and very soon after the. Space Program grant began the seven original astronauts and I can name them all. I knew them all they all moved down there and they bought a part of the Sheraton Hotel they were my bosses. And I would hang out. At the Sheraton at the pool. And they come around hanging around sniffing around looking at pretty girls. Alan? Shepard was hound dog and the you know Disney is running. A remake of the. Movie The right stuff and the book, the right stuff and. It's been Hollywood is, but there's a lot of truth shepherd for what he was. He was constantly chasing women. There was a bar there and they were just you know I mean, you know, hey, honey I'm an astronaut. Does that work. On my guy. Did that work. You know I mean they owned a hotel so they had their choice rooms and. You know I don't recall that John Glenn was ever evolved. He's got a reputation as a straight Arrow in a Bible thumper I. Don't think he was a chaser but most of the rest of them war I mean. They were family men. Their spouses move down there with them eventually. But. They were you know these guys who are they were test pilots man that I mean look in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, John Kennedy threw down the gauntlet, and said I wanNA put a man on the moon in ten years. And they did it think about that they didn't have you know these things these this this little iphone here has got more computing power than they put on those spaceships and they did it. They started with the redstone rocket and the and the the mercury capsule and the the Atlas-centaur and the Gemini Capsule the Titan Three C. and then finally the Saturn five I knew them all and I knew I knew at you know the the photographer for. The Associated Press turn one of the rooms at the Sheraton into a darkroom, and he'd let me come up there and help them develop film. So that was my I was always interested in photography, and that was my first exposure to color work and I mean, can you imagine this was exciting stuff especially for a seventeen eight or nineteen year old kid being around these studs and the space program and all these engineers were young bright talented people and that whole area that the space coast they call it. Now, it just grew up overnight and think about this they they started with almost nothing and they put a man on the moon in ten years just incredible without any of the computing power that we have today. It was really fun stuff. No doubt sounds like a great time and inspirational to you as well. were there other jobs or there no reason to have any other job than stay at that share to something?.
"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.
What Is NASA's Astronaut Beach House?
"Astronauts are driven disciplined physically fit and trained to solve complex problems in high stakes situations. But of course sometimes they just want to get away from it all from the press the physicians and the rigors of flight prep. You've gotTa make time to sharpen the saw. But where on earth can these people find a little seclusion? Well M- since nineteen sixty. Three Nasr's kept a bungalow on the East Florida coast closed to the general public. It's been a welcome retreat for generations of astronauts barbecues and bottles signings are cherished pastimes at the hideaway so are fond farewells. Historically this was the last place where many space bound crews got to hang out with their families before launch. Here's the story of the Kennedy Space Center Beach House and Conference Center or the Beach House. For Short Florida. Nasa go a long way back in nineteen sixty one. It was decided that the agency would build a new launch center on Florida's Merritt Island which is technically a peninsula by the way other sites were considered including New Mexico's White Sands missile range. Where the first atomic bomb had been set off sixteen years prior proximity to the Atlantic Ocean gave Merritt Island a strategic advantage. Rockets launched there could streak across the ocean without disturbing populated areas. Latitude was another plus. Florida is reasonably close to the equator. Where Earth's rotation speed is at? Its fastest when you set off a rocket in the sunshine state. The vessel can save fuel by capitalizing on this principle. It's why Merritt Island is now the home of Kennedy Space Center SPACEPORT NASA. Wasn't the first group. Take an interest in this region however the US military had been testing missiles on nearby Cape Canaveral since nineteen forty nine and then came snowbirds education homes and other seaside properties sprouted like daisies and the postwar economy. One piece of real estate was a two story. Beach House constructed in nineteen sixty two really. It was just another wood framed building in the Neptune beach subdivision at first Nessa partnered up with the Army Corps of Engineers to buy the entire development in nineteen sixty three four. Thirty one thousand five hundred dollars which is a little more than two hundred sixty six thousand eight hundred dollars in today's money neighboring houses and the gas station were cleared away but this plain Jane cottage escaped. The wrecking ball situated on government owned land. The Beach House is well off the beaten path in his two thousand six memoir astronaut. Richard Mike Mullane said the place was as isolated as Mars originally called the astronaut training and rehabilitation building. It started out as a home away from home. A place where crew members could get some shut. Eye on overnight stays as the decades past the bungalow evolved into more of a hang out. Spot astronauts could drop by individually or as crew many also chose to take their spouses and families over by design though. This isn't the easiest spot to access the space shuttle veteran Robert Springer who flew missions in nineteen eighty nine and nineteen ninety recalled. The Hannah's crewmates used to borrow the key from an acid staff member. A spontaneous visits were not encouraged. Though a one day payload specialist Samuel Durant's waltzed over with some colleagues but forgot to give the administrators any advance notice on their way back. The group was met by Swat team and guests had to play by the house rules. For example young children were barred from the premises. During astronaut quarantine periods. The House has entertained. Its share of politicians and diplomats. And to this day it remains an active meeting place for government organizations but among. Space History Buffs. This mid-century is remembered first and foremost as an explorers waystation filled with the stories of its tenants. There was the time that springer and a crewmate winter a dip in the ocean only to be met by helicopter full frantically waving airmen. It turned out. The swimmers had gotten a little too close to an enormous gang of sharks unaware of the danger and oblivious to the warning. The astronauts waved back. Don't worry everything turned out fine. Prelaunch barbecues are traditional shortly before his space takes off. It's customary for them to gather with family members of the cottage for muscles and Colm Rotary. Sometimes the guests get dinner and a show former Kennedy space center. Deputy Director James A gene. Thomas witnessed a cause play prank at one of these beach parties. The mission being toasted that day was set to include Franklin Story Musgrave a legendary astronaut. Who happened to be bald just for kicks. The rest of his crew decided to impersonate. Mas Great at this barbecue so everyone showed up with rubber latex sheets on their heads and name tags that read. Hi I'm story. Another longstanding tradition at the Beach. House involves leaving. Your mark. Outgoing crew will sign a wine bottle before they blast off official mission logos usually adorned these mementos by now. Few decades worth of space. Flights have been chronicled on bottlenecks and wine labels now can cabinet display in two thousand sixteen hurricane. Matthew did a number on the bungalow necessitating massive repairs inside and out once. The kitchens bathrooms multiple walls. And most of the second floor had been overhauled. The cottage reopened on July twenty fifth of twenty eighteen. We reached out to the Kennedy Space Center. Which informed us that. The House is not currently being used by any astronaut crews. But who knows? Maybe that'll change in the near future. Nasa does want to quote. Put the first woman in next man on the moon or the twenty twenty four no doubt future occupants will feel mixed emotions at the old beach house most astronauts do along with their loved ones. Donnellan. Mike's wife said in two thousand ten interview with NASA as a spouse. You know you're coming out here to say goodbye and you don't know if it's the last time yet by many accounts. Fear intermingled with excitement from the bungalow visitors have gotten some spectacular views of eager rockets ships ready for launch gleaning from the nearby space center.
Could We Be Entering an Era of Commercialized Space Exploration?
"I S A great deal to Nasr's defunct Space Shuttle Program Green Lit by then president Richard M Nixon in nineteen seventy two. This initiative gave the world its first reusable spacecraft from nineteen eighty one to two thousand eleven NASA astronauts into orbit on American made shuttles. These were often used to transport portions of the ISS during its construction on July Twenty first twenty eleven. The space shuttle. Eric came to an end. As the Atlanta's orbiter returned from its final mission with the program just continued. I S bound astronauts grew dependent on Russian Soyuz rockets. Then the law of Supply and demand took over for nearly a decade. No other rockets were capable of sending people to the ISS. All astronauts bound for that station had to be launched out of Kazakhstan Baikonour cosmodrome which is spaceport least to the Russian government and by April of two thousand twenty. The Russians were charging eighty six million dollars to include foreign astronauts in their Soyuz missions. Another Soyuz rocket launch is scheduled for October. And Breitenstein says NASA is currently negotiations to book a seat. Nevertheless it's hoped that the SPACEX x crew dragon will end the spaceflight monopoly. Rydin Stein explained. We want the russian-american relationship in space exploration to remain strong. We see a day. When Russian cosmonauts can launch on American rockets American astronauts can launch on Russian rockets by now space x the International Space Station? Have a fair bit of history. Using unmanned crafts the company has delivered supplies to the orbiting laboratory since two thousand twelve. The crew dragon aced dress rehearsal and March of two thousand nineteen when it left. Merritt island on the nose of a spacex Falcon nine rocket and autonomously docked with the International Space Station. Five days after its departure the crew track and returned to Earth splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean. Some one hundred and forty three miles or two hundred thirty kilometers a Florida's eastern coastline. But that trip only passengers were in earth shaped plush toy and a dummy named Ripley AB- named after Sigourney Weaver's character Ellen Ripley from the alien movie franchise a flight later. This month will be the first time that live. Astronauts will be on board space x crew mission director. Benjamin Reed said at the May First Conference Dragon will be fully autonomous. Expectation is that can carry the crew safely to the station and bring them home without direct intervention even so hurley and Bankin are set to take control for a short period before the crew dragon. Docs they'll be able to guide the vessel using touch screens or physical switches. Both options are available for certain portions of the journey while aboard cruise expected to test out such components as the maneuvering thrusters and in my own. Mental Control System. And then there's the spacesuits one piece outfits designed by SPACEX to supply the astronauts with oxygen provide the appropriate temperature and maintain pressure spacesuits plug into the crew dragons chairs when their wares. Sit down read. Said suits also have an integrated communication system so that the crew can communicate through their helmets. Neither Bank nor Hurley are strangers to low earth orbit. Lincoln's logged more than seven hundred eight hours in space and Hurley a member of NASA's last shuttle era crew back in two thousand eleven but every mission presents its own unique challenges like the rest of the world NASA space x and these two astronauts had to make adjustments during the krona virus taking extra precautions. So what does that mean? Both SPACEX and NASA have implemented social distancing protocols like keeping work desk six feet or two meters apart at their respective control rooms. Meanwhile the cruise getting a wide. Berth contact with them by any other team. Members has been minimized and many training sessions have been done. Virtually and the safety of is S. crew the astronauts will observe a preflight quarantine for May sixteenth until the launch on May twenty seventh. Right now. There are three space fares two Americans and a Russian living and working aboard the International Space Station. The length of Benjamin's and Harley stay at the facility will be determined at a later date it could last anywhere from five to thirty days when the time to head home arrives the crew tracking should undock Disley and deliver. Its human charges to Florida by way of the Atlantic. There's a long proud tradition of civilians gathering near the Kennedy Space Center to witness rocket launches. Unfortunately NASA is discouraging people from following suit this time lest they spread or contract Cova nineteen. But you can tune in and watch launch online for just the fifth time in history NASA astronauts will be test flying a new type of spacecraft should bankin an early complete their mission objectives. We may yet see a golden age of space tourism and innovation with private industry taking on development roles long adopted by governments Breitenstein. Said this really is the next major step. In commercializing low earth orbit and having a really vital low earth orbit economy in which NASA is one of many customers.
