For Spacious Skies: The Uncommon Journey of a Mercury Astronaut.
by [Astronaut Memoir Signed] Carpenter, Scott; Stoever, Kris.

Publisher Information:
Harcourt Brace, San Diego: 2002.

A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Signed by Astronaut Carpenter. Scott Carpenter was one of seven Project Mercury astronauts who took part in America's burgeoning space program in the 1960s. He writes candidly of the pioneering science, training, and biomedicine of early space flight and tells the heart-stopping tale of his famous spaceflight aboard Aurora 7. He shares stories from the earliest days of NASA and, for the first time ever, Carpenter's own account of his controversial flight and splashdown.
