 Little Joe
When Project Mecury began in October 1958, the purposeof the Little Joe phase was to propel a full-scale, full-weight developmental version of the manned spacecraft to some of the flight conditions that would be encountered during exit from the atmosphere on an orbital mission.
The Little Joe launch vehicle was 48 feet in height, weighed (at maximum) 41,330 pounds, was 6.66 feet in diameter, consisted of four Pollux and four Recruit clustered, solid-fuel rockets, could develop a thrust of 250,000 pounds, and could lift a maximum payload of 3,942 pounds.
The purpose of the instrumentation was to obtain measurement of the vibration and sound environment encountered on the capsule during the firing of the Grand Central abort rocket.

 Little Joe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Little Joe was a booster rocket used in the United States space flight program, as well as the name of a subprogram within Project Mercury comprising test flights using that booster.
The designers made the Little Joe booster assembly to approximate the same performance that the Army's Redstone booster would have with the capsule payload.
So the official designation for the first Little Joe flight was "LJ-1." Flights did not occur in numeric sequence as the project scheduling was adapted as it progressed.

Seven unmanned Little Joe rockets were launched at Wallops Island, Virginia, from August 1959 to April 1961.

Comment by: Morat20 at August 13, 2006 03:16 PM Joe Lieberman is the most Republicratic member of the Senate.
If anything, I expect his lead to grow a little by the next poll, because a few might've been deterred from naming a "3rd" candidate as their preference, but won't now that he's 1st.
I stated that he was Republicratic inasmuch as he encourages the tendency for there to be little appreciable difference between Republicans and Democrats--especially in the Democrats' failure to have a foreign policy that even constitutes an opposition agenda.

On December 11, 1959, a little more than a week after Dr. Knauf was officially designated the Assistant for Bioastronautics for DOD support of Project Mercury, the STG aeromedical team met with DOD representatives, including him, to brief them on the medical requirements for Project Mercury.
The medical monitors, it was reiterated, would preserve the health of the pilot by giving remedial advice during the flight, evaluating the current medical status of the pilot, and relating spacecraft data on physiological data with the mission.

Before the official investigation board could complete its report two months later, however, a significant piece of the MA-3 autopilot, the programmer, was found buried in the mud near the beach, thereby leading to the corroboration of one of the prime hypotheses for this failure.
Meanwhile, back at Wallops Island, the seventh and last booster in the Little Joe series was fitted with capsule No. 14 and made ready for a repeat of LJ-5 and LJ-5A in hopes that the third try would be charmed.
The preflight documentation was virtually identical to that of the previous Little Joe flight, as was the refurbished spacecraft.

There it is the highest average power or pace one can maintain for several hours -- a relatively low number by all standards.
