Mercury 13 plot

"Meet the women who dared to reach for the stars."

'Mercury 13' is the story of the women who were tested for space travel in 1961 before their dreams were shattered to be the first to make the journey beyond Earth. NASA's space program, dubbed "Project Mercury," began in 1958. The chosen men—all military test pilots—became known as The Mercury 7. But in addition to the media spotlight, behind tightly closed doors, female pilots were also screened. Thirteen of them passed and in some cases outperformed the men. They were called the Mercury 13 and had the necessary qualities but were unfortunately of the wrong gender.
