Random information on the term “AOK”:
A-ok (also, A-okay or A-OK /ˌeɪ.oʊˈkeɪ/) is a more intensive word form of the English term OK. The phrase can be accompanied by, or substituted with, the A-OK sign.
US Air Force Lt. Col. John “Shorty” Powers popularized the expression “A-ok” while serving in the 1960s as NASA’s public affairs officer for Project Mercury, the “voice of Mercury Control”. He was reported as attributing the expression to astronaut Alan Shepard during his historic Freedom 7 flight, which was the United States’ first manned space flight. However, in his book, The Right Stuff, author Tom Wolfe wrote that Powers had borrowed the expression from NASA engineers who used it during radio transmission tests because “the sharper sound of A cut through the static better than O”.
The NASA publication, This New Ocean: A History of Project Mercury, says in a footnote that “A replay of the flight voice communications tape disclosed that Shepard himself did not use the term” and that “Tecwyn Roberts of STG and Capt. Henry E. Clements of the Air Force had used ‘A.OK’ frequently in reports written more than four months before the Shepard flight.” Apparently, the first documented use of “A-ok” is contained within a memo from that Tecwyn Roberts, a Flight Dynamics Officer, to Flight Director (entitled “Report on Test 3805”, dated Feb 2, 1961) in penciled notes on the countdown of MR-2 (Mercury-Redstone 2), dated Jan[uary] 31, 1961.
