18 January 2018: USAF’s Attempt To Solve Hypoxia Headache

The U.S. Air Force created a team to investigate the unexplained physiological episodes happening across the service’s fighter aircraft, after reports of hypoxia forced the service to ground portions of the A-10 Warthog, F-35A and T-6 Texan II trainer fleets last year.  In recent years the USAF pilots have reported varying rates of hypoxia-like cockpit episodes on the F-22 Raptor, the F-16 Fighting Falcon and F-15 Eagle. The goal of the Unexplained Physiological Episode integration team is to provide an enterprise-wide look at these incidents and ultimately recommend actions to reduce and, someday, prevent PEs altogether Traditionally pilots have been wary of coming forward with stories of PEs, for fear that they will be grounded. The action taken aims for a better understanding of PEs which in return will motivate more pilots to report such incidents.

11 January 2018: John Young (1930-2018)

John Young was perceived among his colleagues as an astronaut’s astronaut. During a flight career that spanned NASA’s Gemini, Apollo and space shuttle programs, he landed on the Moon, commanded the inaugural shuttle mission and became the first person to fly on six space missions. He also headed NASA’s astronaut office and was an outspoken advocate for astronaut safety. Young was named to NASA’s second group of astronauts in September 1962, along with Neil Armstrong, Frank Borman, Pete Conrad, Jim Lovell, James McDivitt, Elliot See, Tom Stafford and Ed White.
John Watts Young was born on Sept. 24, 1930, in San Francisco. As a child, with a family, he moved to Orlando (Florida). He attended the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, earning a Bachelor’s of Aeronautical Engineering degree in 1952. Upon graduation, he was commissioned as an ensign in the U.S. Navy becoming a captain in 1970. Young ultimately logged more than 3,700 hr. flying time, including more than 3,100 hr. in jet aircraft. He spent a total of 34 days, 19 hr. and 39 min. flying in space, including 20 hr. and 14 min. walking on the Moon. In his memoir (2012), he wrote, “ Whenever and wherever I found a potential safety issue, I always did my utmost to make some noise about it, by memo or whatever means might best bring attention to it,”

7 January 2018: Delayed SpaceX Falcon Sends Payload into Orbit

The mission, known as Zuma, had been delayed since November so engineers could review a potential issue with the payload fairing. SpaceX last month proceeded with the launch of a Dragon cargo capsule to the International Space Station for NASA. A SpaceX Falcon 9 took off from Cape Canaveral to put a classified spacecraft into orbit for an undisclosed U.S. government agency. After blasting off at 8 p.m. EST toward low-Earth orbit, the Falcon 9’s first stage flipped around and flew back to the launch site, settling down on a landing pad eight minutes after liftoff. This is the first of some 30 launches on SpaceX’s manifest for 2018. Today’s flight clears the launch team to focus on the long-awaited static test fire of the new, triple-core Falcon Heavy. The booster, which will be the most powerful U.S. rocket to launch since the Apollo-era Saturn 5, is scheduled for a test flight before the end of the month from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center.
