"Be an Astronaut"

Recommended Posts

"Be an Astronaut" - that was the sign at this Mercury Capsule mock-up at the United States Pace Park. I'm sure quite a few kids (and adults) "flew" a mission or two in this. Photographed September 13, 1964. Newly restored 35mm slide.

I grew up in the Shuttle era.  Seeing a Mercury capsule as an adult was a whole bunch of "nope!"  You couldn't pay me enough to strap myself into a capsule about the size of my trash cans and be shot into space.
