Think Like a Freak: How to Think Smarter about Alm&hellip by Steven D. Levitt

Yes there may be better in depth documentaries of the overall technicalities and mission program (including Mercury and Gemini) on other films, but this crystallises the emotions and inspiration these men gave to the rest of the world.

On a technical point, some of the original footage is 1960s based,… Read more
