See URL. -- Photographed on: 06/26/02. -- Publicity photograph of a technician measuring a wind tunnel model of the Little Joe test vehicle. Joseph Shortal noted that (vol. 3, p. 29): "The largest project at Wallops in support of Mercury was the Little Joe project, designed to qualify the abort-escape system under flight conditions." James Hansen (p. 47) writes: "STG engineers Max Faget and Paul Purser, then of Langley's PARD, had conceived Little Joe as a space capsule test vehicle even before the establishment of NASA and the formation of the STG. Girlruth understood the importance of the Little Joe tests: "We had to be sure there were no serious performance and operational problems that we had simply not thought of in such a new and radical type of flight vehicle." -- Published in James R. Hansen, Spaceflight Revolution: NASA Langley Research Center From Sputnik to Apollo, (Washington: NASA, 1995), p. 47; Joseph A. Shortal, History of Wallops Station: Origins and Activities Through 1949, (Wallops Island, VA: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Wallops Station, nd), Comment Edition.
