Abstract:

Contents Vision in space travel--Criteria for laboratory experiments useful in field situations Visual fitness for space travel The effect of flash distribution and illuminance-level upon the detection of low intensity light stimuli Langley Research Center simulators and studies related to space rendezvous and docking Some Langley Research Center plans in the area of visual displays for lunar mission simulation Visual masking using different test-stimulus patterns Sextant sighting performance in the Ames midcourse navigation and guidance simulator Comments on Major Gordon Coopers observations from orbit Gemini in-flight visual-acuity experiment. Flash blindness--Operational significance of the flash blindness problem The nature of radiation from nuclear weapons in relation to flash blindness Experimental investigations of the flash blindness problem Methods of preventing flash blindness Air Force efforts in the field of flash blindness A flash blindness indoctrination and training device.
