Rate this:
Selected as one of NASA's original Seven Mercury Astronauts, Gus Grissom would go on to become the first man to fly in space twice and later give his life to the NASA space program. This book unearths the story of Indiana's first astronaut by offering a more complete picture of Grissom's life and character and the events that led up to his death. In the most comprehensive biography on the subject yet, Gus Grissom: The Lost Astronaut offers a more personal side and fuller picture of Grissom's life and character. Hours were spent interviewing Grissom's family and friends, who were all more than eager to talk about the astronaut, sharing in the belief that this story is one worth telling to a new generation that knows little about his illustrious career.
