The astronauts the went to Mercury were: John glen, Gus Grissom,Enos,Ham,Alan Shepard
Scott Carpenter,Gorden Cooper,Wally Schirra. Sadly only six out seven of them got to fly
who was first
Alan Shepard was the first astronaut to fly on the Mercury mission
Like I said only six out of seven of them flew. The sad part is that one of the human didn't fly the monkeys still did.
- The total time of the mission was 53 hours 55 min 27 sec
- It was ran through 1959-1963
