An Orbiter film by Unstung. On May 5, 1961, Alan B. Shepard became the first American (second man) to space in the Project Mercury. Freedom 7 was a suborbital flight which lasted under 16 minutes, where Alan Shepard traveled 302 miles. This is a recreation of Shepard's historic flight on his Mercury-Redstone, Freedom 7. http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/
