Mercury MR-4 Chronology

1961 Mar 7 - Mercury spacecraft No. 11 delivered to Cape Canaveral

1961 Jun 12 - Mercury Redstone launch vehicle No. 8 delivered to Cape Canaveral

1961 Jun 22 - Mercury MR-4 recovery requirements:  Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) recovery requirements were forwarded by the Space Task Group to the Navy.

1961 Jun 22 - Redstone for Mercury MR-4 manned suborbital flight erected: The Redstone booster for the Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) manned suborbital flight mission was erected on Pad 5, at Cape Canaveral.

1961 Jul 11 - Key Mercury personnel assignments:  The assignments were made by Walter C. Williams, Project Mercury Operations Officer, for the Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) manned suborbital flight mission. These appointments included on-site liaison and consultation, public affairs, photo couriers, and technical observers. Stations covered were Mercury Control Centre, Atlantic Missile Range Central Control, landing area aircraft carrier, supporting destroyers, support aircraft, and Base Operations at Patrick Air Force Base. 

1961 July 13-15 - Flight readiness review for Mercury MR-4:  A spacecraft, launch vehicle, and mission flight safety review was held in preparation for the Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) manned suborbital flight mission. 

1961 Jul 13 - Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) manned sub-orbital flight mission rules were published.

1961 Jul 19 - Mercury MR-4 launch scrubbed:  Mercury-Redstone (MR-4) with manned Liberty Bell 7 capsule cancelled within minutes of launch because of adverse weather.

1961 Jul 21 - MR-4 Test mission: The Mercury capsule, Liberty Bell 7, manned by Astronaut Virgil I. Grissom, boosted by a Redstone rocket, reached a peak altitude of 190.3 km and a speed of 8,335 km per hour. After a flight of 15 minutes and 37 seconds, the landing was made 487 km downrange from the launch site. The hatch blew while still in water, and the capsule sank; Grissom saved, though his suit was filling up with water through open oxygen inlet lines. This was the second and final manned suborbital Mercury Redstone flight, and the first flight with trapezoidal window. Further suborbital flights (each astronaut was to make one as a training exercise) were cancelled. An attempt to recover the capsule in very deep water in 1994 not successful. It was finally raised in the summer of 1999.

1961 August 5 to October 12 - Tests conducted on the Mercury spacecraft explosive hatch:  A series of environmental tests was conducted on the spacecraft explosive egress hatch because of the difficulties experienced during the Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) mission.

1961 Aug 30 - Investigation of the Mercury MR-4 explosive egress hatch:  An investigation was conducted as a result of the premature activation of the Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) explosive egress hatch. Tests were initiated in an environment more severe than had been conducted in pre-launch activities and tests, but no premature firings occurred. As a backup, McDonnell was asked to design a mechanical-type hatch. The model weighed some 60 pounds more than the explosive type, so other methods had to be sought to prevent any recurrence of the incident. A procedure was initiated which stipulated that the firing plunger safety pin would be left in place until the helicopter hook was attached to the spacecraft and tension was applied to the recovery cable.

1961 Sep 22 - 30-inch balloon to be installed in the Mercury spacecraft:  The Space Task Group announced that a 30-inch diameter balloon would be installed in the Mercury spacecraft to allow for ship recovery should the helicopter be forced to drop the spacecraft, as happened during the Mercury-Redstone 4 (MR-4) recovery operations.
