Trivia

During his space walk Alexey Leonov used an inflatable airlock (the first spacecraft to use such a device) because the Voskhod spacecraft used air to cool it's instruments. A cabin decompression would quickly lead to an overheat and failure of the spacecraft with a likely loss of crew. Gemini used liquid cooling and regularly decompressed the cabin for spacewalks.

Goofs

When the Redstone rocket drops away from the Mercury spacecraft the word "UNITED" is painted on the side. The Redstone rocket actually had "UNITED STATES" painted vertically down its length. The word "STATES" was obscured when the rocket was fueled because it was over the liquid oxygen tank, which was so cold it caused moisture in the air to freeze on the rocket's surface. After launch the vibration of flight and aerodynamic friction would eliminate the ice, making both words visible. See more »

Quotes

Dave Scott: We have serious problems here... we're tumbling end over end up here. We're disengaged from the Agena.
