Now, you know I love all things space, but the panel for The Right Stuff was fantastic, space nut or not.
The Right Stuff is a series based on the 1979 book of the same name and has previously been adapted into the 1983 film.
It follows the early days of NASA and the Mercury space program, specifically “The Mercury Seven,” aka the first crew of astronauts.
Within days of being presented to the world, the Mercury Seven become instant celebrities, forged into heroes before they achieve a single heroic act.
At a time when many wondered if America’s glory days were behind it, The Right Stuff is an aspirational story about how ordinary human beings can achieve the extraordinary.
