years (1958-1986) retrieving film capsules in support of the “Corona” and follow on
Spy Satellite Programs.
Historians consider the “Corona” Program’s mission successes to be equivalent
in Aerospace significance to the Wright Brothers and First Flight, or Yeager,
and Breaking the Sound Barrier.
The “Corona” Program accomplished the following firsts:
1) First return of an object placed in Earth’s orbit.
2) First pictures of Earth from space.
3) First space program with more than one return capsule.
4) First space program to reach 100 missions (145 Total).
