  • (Free flight (air traffic control)) Free flight is a developing air traffic control method that uses no centralized control (e.g. air traffic controllers).
  • (Free-flight) Free fall is any motion of a body where gravity is the only or dominant force acting upon it, at least initially. Since this definition does not specify velocity, it also applies to objects initially moving upward.
  • (Free Flight (band)) Free Flight was an American jazz ensemble led by Jim Walker.

The Case for Mars: The Plan to Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must
The Case for Mars: The Plan to Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must
Since the beginning of human history Mars has been an alluring dream—the stuff of legends, gods, and mystery. The planet most like ours, it has still been thought impossible to reach, let alone explore and inhabit.
Now with the advent of a revolutionary new plan, all this has changed. Leading space exploration authority Robert Zubrin has crafted a daring new blueprint, Mars Direct, presented here with illustrations, photographs, and engaging anecdotes.
The Case for Mars is not a vision for the far future or one that will cost us impossible billions. It explains step-by-step how we can use present-day technology to send humans to Mars within ten years; actually produce fuel and oxygen on the planet's surface with Martian natural resources; how we can build bases and settlements; and how we can one day "terraform" Mars—a process that can alter the atmosphere of planets and pave the way for sustainable life.

"For our generation and many that will follow, Mars is the New World," writes Zubrin. This book went to press serendipitously, just as NASA was making its startling if heavily-qualified announcement that simple life may have once existed on the fourth rock from the sun. Zubrin doesn't spend an enormous amount of time arguing why Mars exploration is desirable -- we all want astronauts to go there, don't we? -- but rather devotes the bulk of this book explaining how it can happen on a sensible, bare-bones budget of $20-30 billion and a "travel light and live off the land" philosophy.

ORBITER APPROACH AND LANDING TEST PROGRAM
ORBITER APPROACH AND LANDING TEST PROGRAM
GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER... ORBITER APPROACH AND LANDING TEST PROGRAM The first orbiter spacecraft, Enterprise (OV-101), was rolled out at Rockwell International's Palmdale, Calif., assembly facility on Sept. 17, 1976. On Jan. 31, 1977, it was transported 36 miles overland from Rockwell's assembly facility to NASA's Dryden Flight Research Facility at Edwards Air Force Base for the approach and landing test program. The nine-month-long ALT program was conducted from February through November 1977 at the Dryden Flight Research Facility and demonstrated that the orbiter could fly in the atmosphere and land like an airplane, except without power-gliding flight. Two NASA astronaut crews-Fred Haise and Gordon Fullerton and Joe Engle and Dick Truly-took turns flying the 150,000-pound spacecraft to free-flight landings. The ALT program involved ground tests and flight tests. The ground tests included taxi tests of the 747 shuttle carrier aircraft with the Enterprise mated atop the SCA to determine structural loads and responses and assess the mated capability in ground handling and control characteristics up to flight takeoff speed. The taxi tests also validated 747 steering and braking with the orbiter attached. A ground test of orbiter systems followed the unmanned captive tests. All orbiter systems were activated as they would be in atmospheric flight. This was the final preparation for the manned captive flight phase. Five captive flights of the Enterprise mounted atop the SCA with the Enterprise unmanned and Enterprise's systems inert were conducted to assess the structural integrity and performance handling qualities of the mated craft. Three manned captive flights that followed the five captive flights included an astronaut crew aboard the orbiter operating its flight control systems while the orbiter remained perched atop the SCA. These flights were designed to exercise and evaluate all systems in the flight environment in preparation for the orbiter release (free) flights. They included flutter tests of the mated craft at low and high speed, a separation trajectory test and a dress rehearsal for the first orbiter free flight. In the five free flights the astronaut crew separated the spacecraft from the SCA and maneuvered to a landing at Edwards Air Force Base. In the first four such flights the landing was on a dry lake bed; in the fifth, the landing was on Edwards' main concrete runway under conditions simulating a return from space. The last two free flights were made without the tail cone, which is the spacecraft's configuration during an actual landing from Earth orbit. These flights verified the orbiter's pilot-guided approach and landing capability; demonstrated the orbiter's subsonic terminal area energy management autoland approach capability; and verified the orbiter's subsonic airworthiness, integrated system operation and selected subsystems in preparation for the first manned orbital flight. The flights demonstrated the orbiter's ability to approach and land safely with a minimum gross weight and using several center-of-gravity configurations. For all of the captive flights and the first three free flights, the orbiter was outfitted with a tail cone covering its aft section to reduce aerodynamic drag and turbulence. The final two free flights were without the tail cone, and the three simulated space shuttle main engines and two orbital maneuvering system engines were exposed aerodynamically. The final phase of the ALT program prepared the spacecraft for four ferry flights. Fluid systems were drained and purged, the tail cone was reinstalled, and elevon locks were installed. The forward attachment strut was replaced to lower the orbiter's cant from 6 to 3 degrees. This reduces drag to the mated vehicles during the ferry flights. After the ferry flight tests, OV-101 was returned to the NASA hangar at the Dryden Flight Research Facility and modified for vertical ground vibration tests at the Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala. On March 13, 1978, the Enterprise was ferried atop the SCA to NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, where it was mated with the external tank and solid rocket boosters and subjected to a series of vertical ground vibration tests. These tested the mated configuration's critical structural dynamic response modes, which were assessed against analytical math models used to design the various element interfaces. These were completed in March 1979. On April 10, 1979, the Enterprise was ferried to the Kennedy Space Center. mated with the external tank and solid rocket boosters and transported via the mobile launcher platform to Launch Complex 39-A. At Launch Complex 39-A, the Enterprise served as a practice and launch complex fit-check verification tool representing the flight vehicles. It was ferried back to NASA's Dryden Flight Research Facility on Aug. 16, 1979, and then returned overland to Rockwell's Palmdale final assembly facility on Oct. 30, 1979.
Departing Flights
Departing Flights
An early morning wakeup got us out of the door and on our way to catch the first of two flights. It was morning, but there was still three hours or more of darkness left in the sky. The first flight was a short two hour flight from Orlando, Florida to Washington, DC. The second flight would be seven times longer than that. There was only one hour and ten minutes between connecting flights, so any delay would domino into a series of major travel setbacks on the destination end of this trip. We gave ourselves a comfortable two-hour cushion to catch the first airplane. While driving south on Interstate Highway 95, we were talking about how the 14-hour flight would not seem too bad if we compared it to our customary 26-hour sail from Miami to Nassau in the Bahamas. Jill had just said, "At least we don't have to be awake to watch for other traffic during this trip", when the brake lights of the long-haul truck ahead of us suddenly glowed brightly. I quickly summoned the Jeep’s brakes. Through the early morning darkness I could see a cloud of dust in the median ahead to my left. Everything on the highway came to a complete stop. I stopped the Jeep a few yards behind the huge truck ahead, which had fishtailed on the roadway to avoid becoming part the calamity on the dark road ahead. The calamity was caused by two large eighteen-wheel cargo haulers hitting each other at very high speeds. I can only speculate that one or both of the drivers fell asleep after driving all night. The result was a lot of debris strewn all across the highway, the right lane blocked by a smashed transfer truck and the left median littered with the bent trailer and cab of the other freight carrier. Just like that, the two-hour cushion we had given ourselves to catch the first flight didn't seem to be enough. The truck ahead of us moved to the edge of the highway. Its driver got out to help. Lights of emergency vehicles were already approaching from the opposite direction. There was a slim opening amongst the debris. In my judgment there was just enough room for the jeep to squeeze by and gain access to the empty highway ahead. A crowd of drivers gathered around the two hapless truck cabs as I maneuvered the Jeep past the scene. We gingerly missed unrecognizable cargo lying in the left lane and broke free of the fiasco just as a police car pulled across the median and blocked the lane behind us. If I would have waited another minute to make my move through the wreckage, I am sure we would have missed our flights; both of them. I said a silent prayer for the two truck drivers, and then pressed down on the gas pedal to take advantage of the empty highway ahead of us. We still had our two our cushion after we went through airport security. We had time to have a little breakfast, the first of many meals that would be a big part of the next two weeks.

The 5 Browns
CD AUDIO SIDE: Entire Album
DVD SIDE: * Entire Album in 5.1 Surround Sound and enhanced LPCM Stereo * Video Performances: - Rimsky-Korsakov: The Flight of the Bumble Bee (arr. Jeffrey Shumway) - Bernstein: Scenes from "West Side Story" (arr. Kendall Briggs) * Exclusive interview footage with The 5 Browns This disc is intended to play on standard DVD and CD players. May not play on a limited number of models.

Their story is truly one of the more unusual tales of classical music today. Pop music has produced world-famous examples of all-in-the-family groups (which typically gave way to one or two solo stars as the years passed). And of course there's the Trapp Family singers of The Sound of Music fame. But the sibling pianists known as the 5 Browns are in a category all their own. They've gotten mega-exposure from profiles on 60 Minutes, Oprah, and the like as the first example in the history of the esteemed Juilliard School of Music in which five members of the same family have won admission (scholarships at that!) and studied concurrently. But if this sounds like a P.T. Barnum publicity stunt, make no mistake: Desirae, Deondra, Gregory, Melody, and Ryan are the real thing--musicians of intense dedication and talent. Their debut CD offers different perspectives on this pianistic quintet. It's not surprising that the literature isn't exactly overflowing with arrangements for five pianos--so only 4 tracks here actually have all ten hands busy tickling the ivories (arrangements of "Flight of the Bumblebee," West Side Story scenes, The Sorcerer's Apprentice and music from Grieg’s Peer Gynt). The flip DVD side includes videos of their amazing in-sync dexterity for "Flight" and the Bernstein excerpts, plus a charming interview introducing the very down-to-earth Browns. They talk about how they took to the piano, one by one, at a very early age and also point out that they remain each other's best friends, which helps them weather the stresses of the competitive classical performing arts world. Other tracks involve several four-hands settings and some solos (my own favorite is Melody's beautiful rendition of Debussy’s gorgeous "L'Isle joyeuese"). We're sure to hear more from this amazingly talented family--whether as a group or as soloists. --Sarah Chin
