Mercury 13

Through exclusive interviews and a wealth of revealing archive footage, this inspiring documentary tells the story of a remarkable group of female aviators. In the late 1950s NASA began the rigorous process of selecting a group of test pilots to spearhead their space programme. Less well known was a similar programme for women pilots, many of whom passed and performed better in the same tests as the men, yet were not selected because of their gender.
