Definitely worth watching ... I remember listening on the radio as Friendship 7 orbited the Earth. We didn't care that the Soviets had already send cosmonauts into orbit -- we were delighted by our achievement, and we knew that more successes would follow. Unlike the Soviets, who cloaked their space program in secrecy, ours was wide open and transparent. We all knew that Glenn was experiencing problems with his heat shield, and we prayed that nothing would go wrong. It was an exciting, exuberating time -- and we loved every minute of it! Back then, we believed that all of us had "the right stuff!"
