NASA holds a press conference to announce that Shepard, Grissom and Glenn will be the “first team” to be launched into space, though they deny that there’s a ranking order for the three. Glenn realizes that keeping the order secret means that NASA can still change their mind and, despite his wife’s Annie’s disapproval, writes letters to NASA about Shepard’s misconduct. Two months before launch, PSAC requests extensive tests of the astronauts. Despite Shepard’s ear problem, his demonstration is a success. Slayton is taken out of Seven when his heart arrhythmia is discovered. Shepard’s launch is delayed for a test launch with a chimpanzee. The test is successful, but the delay allows the Russians to be the first to send a man into space, with Yuri Gagarin.
With JFK now in office, NASA finds itself under scrutiny, and Shepard’s flight is delayed.
