Atlas MA-9
MA-9 pre-launch

Last crewed Mercury-Atlas

Mercury-Atlas was a subprogram of Project Mercury[1]: 1  that included most of the flights and tests using the Atlas LV-3B launch vehicle. The Atlas was also used for one Mercury flight under the Big Joe subprogram.[2]: 207 

The Mercury mission numbering system was: a two-letter designation marking the launch vehicle type, followed by a dash, then a number designating the flight/test number. The Atlas launch vehicles used for Project Mercury were given a two- or three-digit number followed by a "-D", indicating that they were the "D" version of the Atlas.

The missions flown in Mercury-Atlas were:

  • MA-1 using Atlas launch vehicle "50-D"[2]: 276 
  • MA-2 using Atlas launch vehicle "67-D"[2]: 320 
  • MA-3 using Atlas launch vehicle "100-D"[2]: 335 
  • MA-4 using Atlas launch vehicle "88-D"[2]: 382 
  • MA-5 using Atlas launch vehicle "93-D"[2]: 398 
  • MA-6 using Atlas launch vehicle "109-D"[2]: 412–413 
  • MA-7 using Atlas launch vehicle "107-D"[2]: 446 
  • MA-8 using Atlas launch vehicle "113-D"[2]: 467 
  • MA-9 using Atlas launch vehicle "130-D"[2]: 490
