“Facilities to Protect Human Life and Safety” reviews many of the sites and facilities where experimentation on human life support and safety technology was carried out, including the White Sands Missile Range, where the Little Joe II rocket was created. This includes human and non-human primate testing at Edwards and Holloman Air Force bases, by mentionables John Stapp and Joseph Kittinger, on a variety of rocket sleds such as the Bopper Sled. The chapter also covers nominable test tracks like the High Speed and Daisy Test Track, as well as life support equipment, high-altitude jumps, and G-force.
