About We Seven
Published for the fiftieth anniversary of the Mercury program: Project Mercury ran from 1959 through 1963, put the first American in space, and defined NASAs manned space flights to come, from Gemini through Apollo. In We Seven, first published in 1962, the astronauts take readers behind the scenes of this pioneering programeven into the space capsules themselves.
Fascinating firsthand accounts: The astronauts describe the exhilarating launches, hair-raising challenges, and incredible successes of Project Mercuryfrom breaking through the earths atmosphere to panicking when a hatch blows. But Project Mercury was more than the heroism of individual missions. In We Seven, Americas original astronauts share with usas only they canthe hopes and dreams of the U.S. at the dawn of a new era.
