Description Launching of the LJ6 Little Joe on Oct. 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. Photograph published in Winds of Change, 75th Anniversary NASA publication, page 77, by James Schultz **note - see L60-104 page 77 also.
