Highlights - 200th Daisy Track experiment

1 September 1957

The HAFB Aeromedical Field Laboratory conducts its 200th test on the Daisy Track deceleration experiment.

[Footnote: The Daisy Track was a rapidly decelerating track named after the Daisy Air Rifle. If you are in the area of Alamogordo, the restored Daisy Track is on display at the New Mexico Museum of Space History (the shiny cube building on the foothills of the Sacramento Mountains.)]
