Three pressure suited U.S. astronauts tumble weightlessly inside a padded cabin of a looping transport plane in the flight from Wright Air Development Center at Dayton Ohio, on Dec. 3, 1959. Restricted to such brief moments without weight near the earth, one of the seven project mercury astronauts will be weightless when the first manned U.S. satellite blasts free of the earth and orbits through space.
