Page xi - The 9-day flight marked the first time that manned spacecraft of two nations have met in space for joint engineering and scientific investigations. The principal objective of the project was to develop a compatible docking system and rendezvous and crew transfer procedures that might be appropriate for future international manned space missions. This objective was successfully accomplished. An additional objective of major importance was the program of scientific investigations conducted during the...

Page 28-3 - The production of continuous fibers in a eutectic mixture was attributed to the absence of convection currents in the liquid during solidification in space. Image transmission and optical transmittance measurements of transverse sections of the space-grown and Earth-grown ingots were made with a light microscope and a spectrometer.
Page 8-5 - A 0( is the line center wavelength of the ;-th fine structure component, m is the atomic mass of the gas species, c is the speed of light, and k is the Boltzmann constant. When u is the component of the atmospheric velocity along the light beam in the coordinate system in which the Apollo vehicle is at rest, tr(\) becomes The spectral parameters for the gases involved in this experiment are shown in table 8-1.

EQUIPMENT AND EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE The two assemblies shown in figures 7-1 and 7-2 were flown in the command module of the Apollo spacecraft during the Apollo-Soyuz mission. An Nal(Tl) crystal (fig. 7-1) physically identical to those flown on the Apollo 15 and 16 missions was used in this experiment. This assembly did not include the photomultiplier, the proton anticoincidence...
Page 16-1 - The purpose of the microbial exchange experiment (AR-002) was to evaluate components of the infectious disease process in space flight by measuring alterations in three factors: (1) the composition of the microbial populations inhabiting the crewmembers and spacecraft, (2) the ability of each crewmember's defense mechanism to resist infection, and (3) alterations in the ability of certain microorganisms to originate infections.
Page 13-1 - NASA Lyndon B Johnson Space Center Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Feb 1976 16 p refs CSCL 06P Light flashes caused by the interaction of cosmic particles with the visuar apparatus have been observed by astronauts on all space missions since Apollo 1 1 This Apollo Soyuz Test Project experiment compared measurements of the observer's visual sensitivity with measurements of the ambient radiation environment and with the frequency and character of the flashes observed The data obtained reveal a latitude dependence...
