Living Aloft; Human Requirements for Extended Spaceflight NASA SP-483. Mary M. Connors, Albert A. Harrison, Faren R. Akins.
Washington DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Scientific and Technical Information Branch, 1985. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. xiv, [1], 419, [1] pages. Illustrations (some in color). References. Author Index. Subject Index. Name in ink on title page. Front cover has noticeable scuff at bottom half. Ink mark noted at page 294. This was prepared at the NASA Ames Research Center. Since the earliest days of spaceflight, substantial concern has been expressed regarding the physical needs of astronauts, including any biological damage that might result from exposure to radiation or from reduction in gravitational forces. In contrast, relatively little concern has been directed towards people's psychological and social adjustment to space. At one time this difference in emphasis was justified. The Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo flights were measured in hours and days and it could be reasonably assumed that astronauts would be able to withstand certain deprivations for these brief periods. The longer flights of Skylab presented a different picture. Early in the development of Skylab, it was recognized that steps would have to be taken to accommodate a wider variety of human needs. However, the needs that were addressed remained narrowly defined and centered primarily on habitability considerations.

Detailed procedures of what the astronauts would do on their first few visits to the moon. Mr. Cooper, a fifth-generation descendant of the early-19th-century herald of historical fiction, was the author of eight books, and a longtime writer for The New Yorker. Mr. Cooper celebrated scientific achievement, addressed scientific failure and demystified what was behind both. Reviewing his book “Apollo on the Moon” in 1969 in The New York Times, Franklin A. Long, who was the vice president for research at Cornell University, said that Mr. Cooper’s description of an imminent mission to the moon was “remarkably evocative” and that a reader “gets the feel of what it is like to be a crew member in the lunar module.”.

Imaging Saturn; The Voyager Flights to Saturn. Henry S. F. Cooper, Jr.
New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1982. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xiii, [1], 210 pages. Illustrations (some color). Ex-library with usual library markings. DJ is in a plastic sleeve. Henry S. F. Cooper Jr. was a writer who reached beyond the planet to pioneer reporting on space travel. Mr. Cooper, a descendant James Fenimore Cooper, was the author of eight books and a longtime writer for The New Yorker. Mr. Cooper celebrated scientific achievement, addressed scientific failure and demystified what was behind both. Mr. Cooper had hoped to join The New Yorker since he was a teenager. After college, at an editor’s invitation, he submitted two Talk of the Town articles — one on a cockroach hunter, the other on a meteorologist ensconced in Belvedere Castle in Central Park — but received no response. He then spent what he remembered as a few miserable months at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Finally, he was summoned by the editor, William Shawn, who was so impressed with his two articles that he simply asked, “When can you start?” He wrote for the magazine for 35 years. He also contributed to The New York Times Book Review and other publications.
