Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Capturing the events of Americas fourth manned spaceflight, this account tells the story of Malcolm Scott Carpenter and his three orbits aboard the Aurora 7. Based on Carpenters original reports, this guide chronicles the objectives of his mission, tells how he overshot the landing site by more than 250 miles and was declared lost by world news agencies, and explains how he was later found by the U.S. Navy task force. Including a bonus DVD with additional documents and photographs too large to print, this book tells the complete story of an important—and often overlooked—spaceflight.
