NASA’s first space missions were called Project Mercury, and the first pioneering astronauts to fly the new spacecraft were announced just six months after NASA was itself established in October 1958. Over the next decade they became household names whose heroism and daring shaped the future of manned space flight and were to be celebrated in the Hollywood Movie “The Right Stuff”.
