In an undated photo, probably circa 1921, the 19-year-old wing-walker Lillian Boyer performed “the most daring aerial feats said to have been undertaken by one of her sex in the history of aerial thrills” — a history she must have had more than a modest hand in making, performing hundreds of stunts and jumps until federal law prohibited such low-flying planes in 1929. She died of natural, non-plane-related causes 60 years later. Photo: The New York Times
In an article dated Feb. 8, 1953, a man stood in a pressurized chamber to simulate altitude of 65,000 feet with a beaker of boiling water: “If a man were in that chamber, unprotected, he would first ‘boil,’ then ‘explode,’ ” reported C. B. Palmer. The article went on to demonstrate the Air Force’s efforts to grapple with the biological limitations of human flight. “If they didn’t have to fit a man into a cockpit, and make it possible for him to see and move,” wrote Mr. Palmer, “if they didn’t have to provide for oxygen and air conditioning and such auxiliary gimmicks, they could build far more punch into their planes.” Photo: Sam Falk/The New York Times
For The Times Magazine, a “Portrait of the Ideal Space Man,” if not the ideal space cat, from February 1958. As experts were contemplating the medical specifics of what weightlessness in space would do to a living, breathing human being, an unlucky kitten was volunteered as a stand-in, floating from the hand of Capt. Druey P. Parks inside an F-94C jet at 25,000 feet. The article, by Donald G. Cooley, characterized the cat’s reaction as “bewilderment.” Photo: Sam Falk/The New York Times
