Some precision was needed in the calculation, since if the capsule came in too steep, g-forces would be too large, and if its trajectory were too shallow, it would shoot out of the atmosphere again, back into space. However, Cooper had developed a lax attitude towards training during the Gemini program; for the Gemini 5 mission, other astronauts had to coax him into the simulator. He also entered the 24 Hours of Daytona road race while training. Returning to the United States in 1954, he studied for two years at the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology in Ohio, and in 1956 completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering.
His father was assigned to Hickam Field at the time. He started attending the University of Hawaii, and there he met his first wife, the former Trudy B. Olson of Seattle, Washington. She was quite active in flying, the only Mercury wife to have a pilot’s license. Область применения: для измерения, учета и регистрации количества теплоты, а также объема, массы, объемного и массового расхода и других параметров теплоносителя в одной или нескольких контролируемых системах одновременно. Carbon dioxide levels began rising, and the cabin temperature jumped to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38°C). Cooper turned to his understanding of star patterns, took manual control of the tiny capsule and successfully estimated the correct pitch for re-entry into the atmosphere. During the 19th orbit, the capsule had a power failure.

This flight, using the «Falcon» launch vehicle and the «Dragon» capsule, was unmanned. This cinetheodolite system would take pictures at one frame per second as an aircraft landed. Although the capsule carrying the ashes fell back toward Earth as planned, it was lost in mountainous landscape. Cooper drew lines on the capsule window to help him check his orientation before firing the re-entry rockets. «So I used my wrist watch for time,» he later recalled, «my eyeballs out the window for attitude. Quaid also had his hair cut and dyed to match how the former astronaut’s hair looked during the 1950s and 1960s. Cooper was later depicted in the 1998 HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon, in which his character was played by Robert C. Treveiler.
