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 »


During the dinner honoring Alan Shepard's 6th anniversary flight, a photo of 'Earth Rise' is on display. This photo would not be taken until Apollo 8, a few years later. See more »

A wonderful true and nostalgic show
15 August 2015 | by vetsandpetsSee all my reviews

I'm hooked. It is so refreshing to watch shows that bring back part of history. The Space Program was, is, and will always be a huge part of what America is all about. The 1960's was such a turning point for our country and I am thankful that I got to grow up during this era. How refreshing not to have to watch a horrible reality show. The acting is wonderful and I love seeing many new faces that have terrific acting skills. The story lines are carefully brought to life in a most compassionate way and as for the clothing, I remember my mom dressing like these ladies. It is fun to look back at the typical ranch houses of yesteryear and the old cars that were made like tanks. Sadly, there are only 10 episodes for this short season. Why do these summer fill-ins only have so few episodes? Many regular season shows do not start until October or so. I pray The Astronaut Wives will continue on and film another season. So many people I know watch this show and love it. All the gals in my neighborhood can't get enough of it. Astronaut Wives is lucky to have so many talented actors and it shows.
