Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of original aircraft, engine, and equipment log books of aircraft operated by NACA and NASA from Langley Research Center. Each log represents a history of the aircraft/engine/equipment from its manufacture, through its pre-NACA/NASA service, and during its operation by that agency.
Biographical / Historical:
The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics [NACA], created by act of Congress, 3 March 1915, and its successor, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration [NASA] operate an aeronautical research center on Langley AFB, Hampton, VA. Work at the Langley Research Center has ranged over a wide variety of aeronautical subject intended to extend performance, efficiency, and capability of aircraft. Operations at Langley extend from theoretical and wind-tunnel experiments through full scale flight testing.

Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of material chronicling the NACA/NASA career of Dennis Hasson, notably his work on Project Mercury, his work with a lenticular manned reentry vehicle for planned lunar missions; and his work with deep-space probes. The following type of material is included: Langley NASA newsletters; memos and correspondence; phone lists and organizational charts; newspaper articles; photographs; one 16 mm film of wind tunnel testing; reports; and drawings.
Biographical / Historical:
Dennis Hasson received his Mechanical Engineering BES from The John Hopkins University, his Aerospace Engineering MS from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and his Engineering Material Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. Hasson worked at NACA-NASA at Langley Research Center, as well as the Goddard Space Flight Center. Hasson's work started with experimental aerodynamic studies on advanced aircraft, such as the X-15 and Mach 3 transport. In March 1959, Hasson was assigned to the Aerodynamics Group at Langley Field. That group was responsible for the aerodynamic performance of the manned space vehicle in the earth's atmosphere. Hasson was responsible for the wind-tunnel program for the Mercury project and he and two coworkers received a patent for a manned reentry vehicle for planned lunar missions. In 1961, he became involved in advanced control thruster and power systems for deep-space probes, using advanced materials including fabricators and metallic, polymeric and ceramic materials. He is a Fellow of both ASM international and ASME Internal. He received the Meritorious Civilian Service Medal, and was Pi Tau Sigma USNA Chapter Teacher of the Year. He is currently a Professor at the US Naval Academy in the Mechanical Engineering Department.
