SIGNED by SCOTT CARPENTER and WALLY SCHIRRA. SIGNED and INSCRIBED: “GORDON COOPER, Faith 7” and MAX FAGET, Mercury Designer.”

Illustrates a Goodyear proposal for modifications which would enable escape from the Mercury spacecraft. Two profile drawings of the spacecraft show the astronaut having a rocket motor attached to his couch to propel the pilot away from the space vehicle. This method of escape would eliminate the need for the escape rocket tower assembly, thus reducing the overall spacecraft launch weight.
