Today In History
On this date 27 years ago, the Space Shuttle Enterprise made its first free flight, commanded by Apollo 13 LMP (and Mississippian) Fred Haise and piloted by Gordon Fullterton, after being carried aloft on NASA's 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. (Though the picture above is actually from the second of the five free flights.) Also on this date, 42 years ago, two manned spacecraft were in orbit simultaneously when Voshkod 4 joined Voshkod 3, which had been launched the day before.
