Beschreibung

We set sail on this new sea . . . On April 9, 1959, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) introduced Americas first astronauts to the pressScott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, John Glenn, Virgil Grissom, Walter Schirra, Alan Shepard, and Donald Slayton. The seven men, all military test pilots, were carefully selected from a final group of thirty-two candidates. But the real truth of NASAs search for Americas best pilots is not found in the thirty-two finalists that eventually produced Project Mercurys heroic list of space pioneers. The Original Seven Mercury astronauts chosen to lead Americas charge into a new frontier were certainly worthy. They were Americas best and brightest. But perhaps the very best never got the chance and served his country in obscurity.
