"Meanwhile in Russia they didn't care. They sent old Valentina Tereshkova up in space becoming the first woman in space in June of nineteen sixty three. Yeah and the women tried to. He's not to their advantage of like we hear Russia's got this woman they're going to send up. Why don't we get? Why don't we get a woman there too and they were like? That's just a Russian publicity stunt women just Americans just pipe down okay and to be fair probably was yeah and A lot of the quote he find about Trish Cova. It was That you know after after that there are a lot of male people the space program saying. I'm never going to work with the woman again so it took a while after Trish go get another another woman in space. The mercury thirteen women disbanded and didn't come together again until Eileen Collins piloted a space shuttle and they all came for her launch Because she wanted to thank them for being so inspirational to her her but most women when they think of the space program and NASA and women think of Sally Ride Sally K ride astrophysicists in America's first woman astronaut who took off into space on June eighteenth nineteen eighty three so by the time sally ride went into space. They had done all they done more more testing. They got rid of this one rule about military pilots that have kept the mercury thirteen women back. allegedly probably just greater sexism. And they did test after after test on men and women in space and most of the tests were focused on Of course women and menstruation could women who had their periods in space handle at as well as maybe men who weren't encumbered by that menstrual blood go gravity free environment. I think actually now when they sent a woman into space Her box of tampons all the tampons are kind of attached to each other. So that the one won't fly away for the woman can can use it side note The but basically these tests find that. There's no difference between men women and space. In fact some tests start to find that women might do better in space than men like those mercury thirteen tests held out. Maybe women have the emotional reserves to deal with the isolation and the craziness of space. Maybe they deal with the muscle loss better. Maybe they're less likely to have a heart attack doc and die in space and are stronger physically to undertake the mission. Yes and yet. They're still been you know this this huge reservation about Sending women into space but one woman we do need to mention before we go any further. Is macy Jemison. She's an engineer and medical doctor who became the first black woman in space on September Twelfth Nineteen Ninety two and like I mentioned Eileen Collins also deserves a big shot at. She was the first one to pilot American space shuttle title and then the first one to pilot and command and NASA space shuttle and that was in nineteen ninety five and two thousand five so more women are slowly going into space It it seems like there will always be that sort of confusion about whether it's a man's job a woman's job China's trying to work on their space program and they're saying only mothers can go into space because they don't WanNa on a mess up woman's future fertility so this question still of you know women and children and periods it's still kind of screwing up women's journeys into the stars. You think though that the Columbia and the Challenger disasters where four women were killed for female astronauts were killed. Do you think that the kind of the magnitude of those assessors be had a chilling effect at all. I mean it. They didn't happen all that long ago. All right but it seemed like you know I mean that's Four out of fourteen astronauts being female. That's that's a much better ratio than it used to be true and especially on the Challenger when Christa McAuliffe. The teacher was the public face of that disaster. I think that probably Yaffe were a little girl at the time seeing her so closely associated with that disaster probably all. I did put a damper on a lot of astronaut dreams. Although Sally Ride would say that the problem is not so much disasters like that as just that. We don't push girls in math and science as well to put boys and this is a discussion that you know we've had several times on whether Whether girls are given the tools to excel in these fields but she started Sally Ride Science a corporation that teaches both teachers and girls about how to keep science interesting Beyond the middle school and high school years so she's hoping thing that that sort of work will keep girls more interested in the pursuit that could lead to a space career and then it also this whole issue also just brings up a larger societal question. Shen of why we still have trouble with the idea of putting women in high risk situations you know goes into like women being allowed into combat and the military sending women into space. You know just anytime we position women in life potentially life-threatening arena. We're far less comfortable will then putting a man in the same place. Yeah despite the fact that like we said women might be better physically equipped if studies are correct Then men but then again some people say hey that the entire space program is underfunded and maybe it doesn't matter at all maybe it's useless But I do think that's a valid question is do we not want women in space because it is you know something that's so unknown and that makes us nervous Or you know. Is there still inherent sexism and some of these fields. You know. It's it's worth Questioning whenever we see a space command going up and of course we have to mention a Lisa Nowak. Oh yeah the bad apple a female astronauts For All all of the progress other female astronauts that made you had to go and strap on some disposable diapers and chase down. who wasn't her Her husband or ex-husband's at grover just boyfriend boyfriend's girlfriend and she had a husband and some kids at home and wanted to confront her female rival for a fellow astronaut's affection. And you know that might. Maybe that's an issue there have been You know quotes and all these articles and reading about how this one man said. He wouldn't send us one woman up into space space. He would send three at a time so that there wouldn't be like a rivalry between two of them and one of them just won't be like the token woman that everyone was after. Like you know if you are up there for months at a time. What kind of dynamic sets in in such close quarters Now I don't know speaking of the deprivation testing. I'm not sure what year this was but Yeah it does seem like it's a bad idea to only send one woman at a time because there was deprivation testing going on in Antarctica. That was one woman among all these other men who were training to be astronauts and apparently her presence alone there just being one of her and these IC- Barron condition. Yeah caused caused some violence among the men. I don't know things get weird really weird sometimes especially women be punished because the men can't can't handle their deprivation absolutely not I mean it's it's only that's only more of an argument to four gender parody. Yeah even out the ratios and maybe dudes won't about so much I know that. So sexist of me to say but it's kind of a cuddle dunking. Don't make up for that.

"Welcome to unexplained extra with me. Richard mclean. Smith with the weeks in between episodes. We look at the stories that for one reason or other didn't make it into the show in last week's episode coming to you live. We learnt briefly about the launch of the Telstar satellite, which in July nineteen sixty two became the world's first active communication, satellite. Propelling us into a new media age of instantaneous global communication. The satellite was just one of an extraordinary Ray of space firsts for humanity which had begun with the world's first artificial satellite. Sputnik? One in nineteen fifty seven and was followed soon after by cosmonaut Eureka Garin becoming the first human outer space in nineteen sixty one two years later Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman in space and only five years after that Neil Armstrong of Nassar's Apollo eleven mission. Achieved the alternate price of becoming the first human to step foot on the moon. The moments symbolized by Garron, an Armstrong, simply seismic achievements in the annals of human history, and however future historians choose to condense our present age. Their names are unlikely to ever be excluded from the retailing of it. What is less? Well known. However is the story of those other animals who helped him and one in particular who became the first sentient creature to orbit the earth. Astray doc plucked from the streets of Moscow that beat the more. This is her story. They serious plans to put a human in space was circulating among rocket scientists in the early twentieth century. It wasn't until the development of the fouls. Fi rocket also known as v two during the second World War that it started to be considered as a genuine possibility. A team that by genius aerospace engineer, burn of Umbrian had developed the rocket for use by the military of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. It isn't clear just how supportive on Braun had been of Hitler. However, there is little doubt that his interest in rockets had only ever been for use in space travel remarking dryly when I hearing news of the successful deployment in London that the rocket had worked perfectly well, with the exception of having landed on the wrong planet. In the aftermath of the defeat of the Third Reich and Hitler's German national Socialist Workers Party the United States and Soviet Union's government who own raise into rocket technology lagged hopelessly behind fun bronze soon found themselves in possession of a superior weapon. They didn't understand. But who better to help decipher it? Then the scientists who built it themselves. Proving that all is indeed fair in love and war in nineteen forty six. The two governments launched the two secret operations of paper clip and so- via Kim that sought to take the best German science had to offer and put them to work on their own weapons development. The biggest catch of the mall on Braun was adopted by the United States with his program manager helmet. Grow trip going the other way and placed under the watchful eye of Soviet rocket engineer, so gay coverlet. The coroner realized almost immediately the potential then Yuli acquired rocket technology offered for space exploration. The Stalin led communist party understandably rattled by the recent US deployment of the Tomich bomb preferred to focus their efforts on their use in the deployment of nuclear weapons. However with the announcement in nineteen fifty four of the US army and navy's plan to launch the world's first artificial satellite. The space race was born. And they're launching a satellite would be the first price true mastery of the cosmos would only be demonstrated by the nation that could I put a human up there. Planning to launch someone into space was one thing doing it. How was quite another matter entirely. The first issue was one of Shia Jere ability when the first v two rockets, which traveled three and a half thousand miles per hour were launched the fastest to human had ever traveled relative to the with three hundred ninety four miles per hour to achieve orbital velocity, however, which require having to reach a speed somewhere closer to seventeen thousand miles per hour. It wasn't even known if the human body could withstand such thing. And it was decided that there was only one way to find out. In the US spearheaded by the US army air cool project Albert became the first in a series.

I think Peter is supposed to be one of these young Soviet pioneer kids. You're kidding. Who's out in the wilderness? I thought making friends with all the animals and stuff. I thought the way it was four hundred years old because you see the Disney version, you're like, yeah. This is this is Paul Bunyan. Whatever actually Paul Bunyan's amazingly recent to she gets to meet Valentina Tereshkova. The first woman in space everything goes off without a hitch. It's big in the US media. I watched the clip for example of her on Carson when she gets back, and she's very charming. She's she's a normal kid kind of the the brilliance of the Samantha maybe why the event had the impacted is because she is not some grinning stage kit eager for the spotlight like she's kind of deer in the headlights on Carson. But you can tell. She's very smart at one point Johnny asks if she can speak Russian, and she says just a few words, I learned spicy, and thus Donya and Carson's like, I don't I don't know any Russian and she says Bolshoi, and he says the ballet do you know, what Bolshoi means she says. Yeah. Great are big. And he's like, yeah. That's right. It's the great ballet, and she looks at him and says I thought you didn't speak any Russia. And is like oh, go. So she's very she's very quick. But she's not one of these awful eager for the spotlight stage. She's from Maine, and you know, people from Maine are hardy, and and fettered what is the word. I'm looking for people from Maine are humble, and generous and have great spirit, there's genuine they're genuine. We spend this whole show, basically making fun of different regionalisms and nationalities. And now you are in favor of Maine. I'm terrified of Mainers is why every everyone in Maine that doesn't live to wreck on the ocean is a terrifying. Rednecks red Hodgman her too. I'm afraid they're gonna murder me like a Angela lansbury and her little village of murder looking at Samantha Smith. And watching some of this stuff learning about her.

Just wrote sort of as a pretty young girl writing about contemporary fashion, and all of the fashion world became enamored with her writing when I've talked about before I can't remember it was on the omnibus. I don't think it was. It was maybe just well. So I met her and spend a extremely charming afternoon with her, but she's grown up. Now. She's in her twenty she's twenty two and I'm so impressed with her. Because when she was young. There was always a sense. Like is this just a novelty is she just a, you know, she's going to end up just going to college joining us aurorae. But but you get the sense that Samantha Smith had this self possession. And that this wasn't just a teenage phase. But that she really was this. She was this person and special person. Yeah. Continue to be a special person as she age and people must have seen it. Because even after the fifteen minutes, the Disney channel hired her to do some election special explaining the eighty four election to kids. She stayed on TV.

"That's an argument that that is that exists and it also existed at the time and the polls from one thing I read on how many you could always kind of cherry pick a poll to backup your arguments. It wasn't very popular at times. So and maybe after some of the tragic headlines associated with I'd love to see those poles who is referring to those polls. You know, it was a left wing. You could always find a poll that does align with your worldview, the the number of people in this country and all over the world, but just going back to this country who were. Who were fixated on their television sense as broadcasts of this entire adventure? We're being shown. Yes, you you. Tell me that this wasn't popular among the American public at large. Maybe maybe if they in the poll survey, the people who write the nation magazine. How do you frame? The question the poll, would you rather have money's going toward axe than the space program? And if it went toward the exit would be a drop in the bucket compared to what we spend on everything else you had another coat of selenium. Here's another part of this of this review. It says there's no hint of where Neil stands on the pressuring pressing questions at the time. He has no black colleagues. No female colleagues. Meanwhile, a female cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova fluid space mission for the Soviet Union in nineteen sixty three. What did he think? What does it matter? I don't know. I mean, you can't do everything also complains in that reviews. It there wasn't enough social commentary about political things at the time talked about Jim crow laws in the south. What the hell is that have to do with this movie? This is the fixation on the left wing political agenda by so many people who are journalists who are movie critics who in in Hollywood their cultural bubble, and they reinforce their own biases. Well, here's the point one. The movie does talk about. About that. Maybe not for twenty minutes. But we mentioned this the Whitey on the on the moon song that we talked about if they did more than they critique would be there should have been much more some of the icy often just in Hollywood and movies. If a subject is addressed maybe it's unaddressed enough to me, the marriage component of film, and the fact that Claire Foy has very substantial role. I think is significant I think they could have completely cut that aside. And just said, hey, here's a guy went to the moon. Here's how we did it, but they did show that relationship, and they did show that he held that she held his feet to the fire. And that he said you gotta talk to your children because you may never see them again. It's a very good seen. So it's not like, they're pushing her aside, and they're not saying that she doesn't count. I think they're really kind of delving into that. But to the critics it's not enough. One of the thing. I'd note the whole space program. This was a new frontier. Take a look at your your GPS in your car. All of this comes from satellite technology that was. That was all associated with the kind of things that had to precede the technology. We had today in the space program was front and center net. Yeah. No, I I don't disagree. There's a site called the Mary sue, and it's a very sort of left of center site, and it's very it's social Justice warriors at large, and I read their view, and I couldn't believe it almost feel like a parody of what a review might be. So I'm gonna kind of pick a couple of items from that particular review, and again, they don't say it's necessarily a bad movie by any stretch, they have a couple of minor quibbles about the artistry on display, but it says we are given a sanitized version history. And quite frankly, I do not know whether it would have been worse to have raw patriotism or this whitewashed version of events, and it's being whitewashed. This is what happened and by all accounts. It's a very accurate assessment of that particular time the film relies on heavy heavily and platitudes about the future of man of looking to the sky in journeying father..

A year after the Vostok to mission the Soviet Union, held a pair of launches on August eleventh nineteen sixty two on three on Nicolae of launched into space on the Vostok three, and he would end up spending almost four full days in orbit making sixty four orbits around the earth. This was still a year before Gordy Cooper would break the American record by orbiting the earth twenty two times in the faith, seven mercury capsule. So the Soviet Union was really setting records in endurance in orbit and records that wouldn't be broke until NASA would have their Gemini project leader on the day after the Vostok three launched the Soviet Union, launched the Vostok four. This one carried poverty Popovich on board that made the Soviet Union. The first country in the world have two manned spacecraft in orbit. At the same time, the two ships. Were actually able to establish ship to ship radio communication when they got close enough to each other and by close enough. I mean, they were still Colomiers apart like six and a half kilometers apart when they established radio communication. So they weren't like they were right next to each other. The USSR would then repeat that feat with the Vostok five and six capsules. Remember Vostok six was also the one that had Valentina Tereshkova the first woman in space aborted those spacecraft launched in June nineteen, sixty three. The Vostok five made eighty two orbits the Vostok six with Valentina aboard made forty eight orbits like the Vostok one and two spacecraft the Vostok five experienced those same problems with that separation from the equipment module upon reentry. And at this point it's amazing to me. Then none of these Soviet missions resulted in a catastrophic failure upon reentry. Now there are conspiracy theories that allege the Soviet Union space program resulted in numerous unreported. Cosmonaut fatalities. I should add that most of those conspiracy theories don't rely on very convincing evidence. It's less circumstantial stuff, and a lot of just wild speculation. Now that does not mean that the theories are wrong necessarily, but I wouldn't put stock into them without more actual evidence and proof of the matter did it happen maybe. But I haven't seen the evidence to convince me yet. Both the mercury and Vostok programs had those six manned missions in both saw the final missions launched in nineteen sixty three and both the USA and the USSR would go onto different designs for their next spacecraft. Although they were both very similar to the previous generation of space craft. So for the Soviets that was the voice called s- project and I have no idea if I'm saying that correctly, I could be completely butchering it, but I'm going with it. So the Voss cod space vehicles started off essentially as Vostok spacecraft, but they had a couple of different design. Lines to it. One, they had an additional solid, fuel retro rocket mounted on the reentry module. Remember the first Vostok spacecraft had one retro rocket, and if it failed, then the cosmonaut board would just have to wait for ten days for the orbit to decay enough for the spacecraft to reenter the atmosphere. However, the voice cod could not take this luxury if you can call it that because it was going to be placed in a higher orbit. So take much longer for its orbit to decay, and it would put the cosmonaut's life in danger. So just in case, one of the retro rockets were the main retro rocket. If it were to fail, there was a backup. The rush cut also had a projection on it. That was a place..

"Either in welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer with how stuff works and all the all things tech. And in my last episode, I talked about the early efforts to put a human being into earth orbit to the moon, actually, no. Just to the orbit, we covered how the Soviet Union did it first with a cosmonaut named Yuri and inside a Vostok one spacecraft actually as a Vostok three k. a spacecraft, those named the Vostok one. And I also talked about how u. s. astronaut Alan Shepard flew a sub orbital mission in the freedom, seven mercury space capsule, but I had not quite reached the point where a US astronaut completed in orbit of the earth or what came next. So in today's episode, we're going to look more at those missions and the spacecraft that followed those early examples. So both Vostok and the mercury spacecraft went on six missions, not not the same spacecraft, but those models they both went on six. Different missions from nineteen sixty one to nineteen sixty three. So there were closely in competition with one another. The Soviet missions included Valentina Tereshkova. She was the first woman in space. The US missions had to sub orbital missions. The first in the freedom seven that I mentioned earlier with Alan shepherd. The second was in a spacecraft named the liberty bell, seven. That one was piloted by Virgil, Ivan, Gus, Grissom. Gus would also play a very important role in the development of the Gemini spacecraft, which I'll talk about later in this episode and starting with the third mercury mission, which was in the friendship seven, and was piloted by John Glenn. The US began to send astronauts into orbit. So John Glenn was the first u. s. astronaut to go into orbit. I'll cover that one more in just a second because that was a big deal for the US. The mercury missions had two designations. These sub orbital flights were classified. Under the name mercury Redstone, the four orbital missions were called mercury atlas missions. So along with Shepard Grissom and Glenn, you had the astronauts, LeRoy Gordon, Gordy Cooper, junior, Walter, mardi Wally Skara junior Malcolm Scott carpenter who didn't get a fun nickname, I guess, and Donald Kent, D.C Slayton the only one, the seven who did not pilot mercury mission because remember there were six mercury missions. They were one man, capsules seven astronauts someone gets left out. The one left out was Donald Kent, D.C. Slayton. He was grounded after medical exams found he had an irregularity with his heartbeat and just to be on the safe side, they decided not to send him up into space. Although everyone kept saying he'd probably be okay, but we don't wanna take the chance Slayton however, would eventually regain his flight status in the nineteen seventies and would ultimately get to travel to space as part..

"It was the Corable Sputnik two, which in the west we call Sputnik five. That was the specific mission to carry animals into orbit and return safely and did so successfully launched August nineteenth nineteen sixty and it carried Belka and stroka two dogs. Plus it had a couple of rats in there a whole bunch of mice and some plants it completed three orbits of the earth, and then it returned safely. So everyone lived on that one. The first human flight into orbit was aboard a Vostok three k. a spacecraft which had the official name Vostok one. And I know that's confusing because the Vostok one k was a type of. Spacecraft wasn't the name. Now's the classification. The Vostok one was the name of a spacecraft, but its classification was Vostok three k. a. yet the cosmonaut aboard that flight was Yuri Gagarin and he launched into the heavens on April twelfth nineteen sixty one. He was the first of six manned flights aboard, the Vostok three k. ace spacecraft model. The sixth one of those flights actually saw Valentina Tereshkova the first woman in space. She launched on June sixteenth, nineteen, sixty three. The Vostok one spacecraft had manual pilot controls, but they were meant to be used only in the case of an emergency. The plan was that all the controls of the spacecraft would happen automatically or would be issued from ground control. And the fear was that no one was really sure what spaceflight was going to do to a person's ability to think and react. It's that same thing that the United States was trying to test with the chimpanzee. So it could be that weightlessness could cause some sort of space madness or maybe the pilot just gets disoriented to the point where that control of the spacecraft would be endanger. So the manual controls were only supposed to be activated by initiating a code sequence aboard, the space craft, and the pilot was not supposed to be told what the code was unless there was an emergency. So if it became necessary, ground control could send up a message to Yuri and say, hey, here's the code sequence you need in order to take manual control of your spacecraft. However, as it turns out, at least one person gave you the code before you haven't gotten to the capsule just in case the Vostok one would launch at six, seven AM ten minutes after launch Yuri was in orbit. He made one orbit of the earth and at seven, twenty five AM or thereabouts, his spacecraft's retro rocket fired to slow down the spacecraft enough for reentry and things went a bit scary at first, the reentry model for the Vostok. One is that fear I mentioned earlier, right? Is fear that's kind of attached to a conical base. Well, the conical basis supposed to detach from the sphere upon reentry supposed to to to separate from little explosive bolts. But that's not exactly what happened. Part of it ended up sticking to the sphere. It was strapped there. There was a bundle of wires that kept the two pieces tethered together, which complicated matters. The sphere was meant to fall in a very controlled way. But with this added weight that was tethered to it, it was causing lots of gyrations and rotations. I can't imagine what the forces felt like inside the spacecraft as it was plummeting down and turning unpredictably Yuri ended up experiencing forces around eight g. that's eight times the force of gravity. We feel here on earth, but fortunately through that process, the conical section eventually broke away and the sphere was able to. Reorient properly and at seven, fifty five. The reentry model reached the altitude of seven kilometers and Yuri ejected. His parachute deployed and he would land in Russia at eight. Oh five. About two hours after he had launched now a little less than a month after his successful flight and orbited the earth aboard the Vostok one America established a new first. Alan shepherd became the first person to actually pilot Espace craft while in space as opposed to ride in a capsule as more or less a passenger. The mission included both automatic pilot and manual control segments shepherd tested the mercury's flight controls. He was aboard a mercury capsule he tested those flight controls to make sure that the spacecraft would react in a way similar to the way they had simulated it back on earth, and he found that pretty much they reacted the same way the simulations did shepherds. Historic flight took place on maith nineteen sixty one aboard, the mercury spacecraft..
