Play Now The Right Stuff Season 1 Episode 7 “Ziggurat”
Following Russia’s space flight and the Bay of Pigs, President Kennedy puts full support behind Shepard’s space launch, which will be open to press and spectators. News about the women’s astronaut corp comes out; when Cooper is questioned about it at a press conference, he makes a joke about it, and Trudy is disappointed. Shepard finds out about Glenn’s letters against him. Glenn copes with people assuming that he’ll be the first to fly. Louise is told about Shepard’s indiscretion. Inclement weather delays Shepard’s launch by two days, but Shepard is spotted in his flight suit by the press, revealing to all that he’ll be the first American to go to space.
Weather endangers Shepard’s flight, as tensions between he and Glenn hit a breaking point.
