"The true story of the "Mercury 13" women."
Performer Performed by Susan Ericksen.
Summary When America created NASA in 1958, there was an unspoken rule in place: astronauts must be white and male. However, thirteen women challenged the U.S. government and proved their strength and valor. Their passage to space was blocked by prejudice, jealousy, and one of the most powerful men in Washington. In the end, though, their inspiring example empowered young women to take their rightful place in the sky, piloting jets and commanding space capsules.
