From concept to concrete results in a mere two and a half years - a truly remarkable achievement.Alan Shepard was chosen from the "Mercury Seven" - the seven original astronauts selected from all applicants - to fly Freedom 7 into history.

drawings of the Mercury-Redstone 3 mission - the flight of Freedom 7. Presented herein are transcripts and documents from the NASA archives, from a time before the assimilation and reporting of mission data was a developed process.INCLUDES: CD-ROM Featuring: The NASA video documentary Freedom 7, video from the Freedom 7 earth-sky camera, video of the Freedom 7 instrument panel, videos of post-flight press activities, and more.
