Early Man Ejection Testing and
Fascinating Early Space Flight Films
This is a fascinating collection of two early space race films showing the early steps that were taken in preparation for a manned space flight.
The first film is Trailblazer in Space. This 9 minute black and white newsreel records in details the adventures of Ham, including preparations and the chimp's 18 minute space flight and landing.
The second film is a silent color film highlighting two very early manned encapsulatet ejection capsule tests. You will see the capsules being ejected from airplanes, follow their flight to the ground and the astronaut safely emerging after it touched down on land. What is most fascinating is that these are land based landings whereas the NASA program later chose to do water based landings for its landing capsules.
This DVD has a total run time of approximately 25 minutes.
