After several delays and sitting in the Freedom 7 Mercury capsule for four hours, astronaut Alan Shepard was frustrated and ready to launch. He famously told Mission Control, “Fix your little problem and light this candle!” On May 5th, 1961, he launched aboard the Mercury-Redstone 3, becoming the first American to fly into space. Project Mercury led to many breakthroughs in NASA’s understanding of spaceflight. NASA learned how to put people in orbit, how to fly a spacecraft and that people could live and work in space. Project Mercury paved the way for launching more humans into space in the Apollo, Space Shuttle and Commercial Crew Programs.
