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 »

Excellent Show About Very Strong Women!
10 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

OK, unlike the sexist review by "Louie" above which was obviously written by a man who hates women, this show portrays the true emotional bravery these women had. They were married to men who flew dangerous missions in the military, then as test pilots and finally, as astronauts. These ladies never knew if and when they'd see their husbands again, all the while, maintaining some sense of normalcy for the small children they pretty much had to raise alone. They also had to put on a brave face for each other and the public because as it was stated in the book "fear is contagious." If one has read the book, and knows NASA history at all, what these women endured wasn't easy. They formed the actual "Astronaut Wives Club" to be a support system for one another. I am really enjoying this show and am happy it was made into a series!
