Mercury re-entry temperatures
« on: 05/25/2008 06:04 PM »
Does anyone know what the peak re-entry heating was for the Shepard/Grissom's flights as opposed to the later Atlas flights? I did hear that heating wasn't so intense on suborbital re-entries, compared to the orbital ones, but does anyone have any numbers?

Thanks
