Why Did the Air Force Play with Cats in Space?

Well not space, but the USAF did play with cats in microgravity to study how they moved.

Blog will be posted Sunday so I can get the companion video edited!

When it was clear men would be flying in space sooner rather than later, it began a new kind of research into how men can move in space, specifically in microgravity. There were a lot of studies in this field, and one 1962 report detailed a series of movements in a weightless environment that could help a disoriented astronaut get to where he needed to be in a spacecraft.

There's loads of olde timey space to dig into on my blog, Vintage Space, too!

Like even older space? "Breaking the Chains of Gravity: the Story of Spaceflight Before NASA" is available now! You can order your copy on Amazon.

I'm also selling signed hardcover editions of my book on my website!
