Description Launching of the Little Joe launch vehicle on October 4, 1959 took place at Wallops Island, Va. This was the first attempt to launch an instrumented capsule with a Little Joe booster. Only the LJ1A and the LJ6 used the space metal/chevron plates as heat reflector shields, as they kept shattering. Little Joe was used to test various components of the Mercury spacecraft, such as the emergency escape rockets. Cropped at the top to remove empty sky, and on the right to remove shadow caused by scanning. Shadows reduced.
Date 4 October 1959(1959-10-04)
