Trivia

Alan Shepard's daughter, Laura, was in Seventh Grade in St. Louis, Missouri on the day that her father made the first sub-orbital flight into space. The Principal took her to a private room to watch her father's famous flight. The rest of the class watched the lift-off and flight in the homeroom. See more »

"Know you Time"
17 July 2015 | by mandy1922See all my reviews

Before writing reviews some should remember what they are watching the very title of the show tells you this will not be about the astronauts as they have had plenty of time in the spot light, this is about there wives so one should keep that in mind before adding their opinion. In my opinion the show captures the time well and the characters are lovable and believable the best part of shows like this is that they are true and relatable for the audience. It will capture your attention and take you right back to that time the best and worst of it all, whether its strong women like Trudy Cooper (Odette Annable) fighting for equal rights or the relationship between the Sheppard's that shows how difficult it was for a women to stand up for herself back then! regardless of it being true and knowing what already happened its got you on the edge of your seat!
