This thing has been to space! Gordo Cooper’s Faith 7 Mercury capsule at the Johnson Space Centre Houston 1/8/17. Launching on May 15 1963, Cooper’s mission was the last of the Mercury flights, completing 22 Earth orbits. Setting an American record for the longest space flight of 34 hours, Cooper was the last person to travel to space on his own.

As per the sign…

Meaning of the #Mercury7 Symbol and #SpacecraftNames
The symbol for the Mercury space flight program combines the astrological sign for the planet Mercury with the number 7, for the number of the original #astronauts .
In astrological symbolism, the crescent of the Mercury symbol represents the mind poised over a circle, representing divine spirit, and a cross, representing physical matter. The crescent points toward the heavens and the cross is rooted in the #Earth . Held in balance between the circle of spirit embraces the 7.
Following the long tradition of pilots naming their own aircraft, the Mercury astronauts chose the names for their #spacecrafts .

It was today in 1963, fifty-five years ago, NASA's Project Mercury program comes to a close with the launch of the Mercury-Atlas 9 mission. The Astronaut Gordon Cooper, who was one of the original Mercury Seven Astronauts, flew the spacecraft that he named Faith 7. Cooper made 22 Earth orbits before re-entering Earth's atmosphere and splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. He would be the last American to fly in space alone. The mission lasted for a total of 34 hours. The success of Project Mercury paved the way for Project Gemini and Project Apollo. #NASA #NASAhistory #ProjectMercury #Faith7 #Science #History #Space #SpaceTravel #SpaceExploration #MercurySeven

On this day in 1963, NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper launched on the last crewed flight of the Mercury Programme. An Atlas rocket launched the Mercury-Atlas 9 mission along with the Faith 7 capsule that housed Cooper. The flight lasted for a total of 22 orbits around the Earth, lasting for a total of 34 hours and 20 minutes. It was the longest flight of the Mercury Programme.
