2 NASA The Six Orbits of Sigma 7: Walter M. Schirra's Space Flight, October 3, 1962
National Aeronautics and Space Administration 1962 First Edition Paperback Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
24 leaves, illustrations, pictorial wrappers, former owner's address label on cover otherwise very good. Oblong 11 by 8 inches. From Wikipedia: "Mercury-Atlas 8 (MA-8) was the fifth United States manned space mission, part of NASA's Mercury program. Astronaut Walter M. Schirra, Jr. , orbited the Earth six times in the Sigma 7 spacecraft on October 3, 1962, in a nine-hour flight focused mainly on technical evaluation rather than on scientific experimentation. This was the longest U. S. Manned orbital flight yet achieved in the Space Race, though well behind the several-day record set by the Soviet Vostok 3 earlier in the year. It confirmed the Mercury spacecraft's durability ahead of the one-day Mercury-Atlas 9 mission that followed in 1963."
