Description

A searing look at the birth of America’s space program, and the men and women aviators who set its course.

In the 1960s, locked in a heated race to launch the first human into space, the United States selected seven superstar test pilots and former military air fighters to NASA’s astronaut class – the Mercury 7. The men endured grueling training and constant media attention for the honor of becoming America’s first space heroes. But a group of 13 women – accomplished air racers, test pilots, and flight instructors – were enduring those same astronaut tests in secret, hoping to defy social norms and earn a spot among the stars.

With thrilling stories of aviation feats and frustrating tales of the fight against sexism, To Fly Among the Stars recounts an incredible era of US innovation, and the audacious hope of the women who took their fight for spaceflight all the way to Washington, DC.
