Movies: The Real Right Stuff tells the tale of the first astronauts from the United States


It is a subject that seems endlessly convincing no matter how much information we ingest about Project Mercury.

Initiated in 1958 by Nasa and completed in 1963, it was the first man-in-space program in the United States.

There is now a new documentary called The Real Right Stuff that goes back to the beginning of the space race era to tell the amazing true tale of the first astronauts of the country, the original Mercury 7.
