He flew in the Mercury and Gemini programs and served as head of flight crew operations in both the Apollo and Skylab programs. His final Mercury mission closed out a pivotal chapter in American spaceflight. Based on extensive research and first-person interviews, this is a complete history of the Faith 7 flight and its astronaut. Cooper later gained notoriety following the release of the movie, The Right Stuff, in which he was depicted by Dennis Quaid, but Burgess discovers there was even more drama to his story. This recounting of the final Mercury 7 flight completes Burgess\'s investigation of the early spaceflight program in thrilling fashion.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Foreword by Alfred Worden (CMP Apollo 15) -- Acknowledgements -- Author Prologue -- Chapter 1: An astronaut from Oklahoma -- Chapter 2: The final Mercury mission -- Chapter 3: One reckless act -- Chapter 4: A day in space with Faith 7 -- Chapter 5: \"A victory for the human spirit\" -- Chapter 6: The end of the Mercury era -- Chapter 7: From Gemini to Apollo -- Chapter 8: \"The greatest pilot you ever saw\" -- Appendices -- Index.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/3588253157<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Biographies<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Biography<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3588253157#Series\/springer_praxis_books_in_space_exploration<\/a>> ; # Springer-Praxis books in space exploration.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/3588253157#CreativeWork\/<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Faith 7 : L.
