Mercury Missions

By: Candace

Our new agency NASA

mission mercury was the first mission to be launched by there new agency NASA. It was really important to the U.S


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
