Episode Summary

EDIT
For Miles And Miles
AIRED:
Even by 1963, Alan Shepard is still riding high after making American history in 1961. He is due to return to space as part of the Gemini program, but a case of Ménière's disease prevented that chance and grounded him. Having a cushy administrative job instead just isn't the same. By 1968, however, a new type of surgery fixes his condition and the flight surgeons give him a clean bill of health. Shepard wants to be an astronaut again, and he manages to make it into the Apollo program – assigned to a crew with Stuart Rossa and Edgar Mitchell. Problem is, he has a lot of learning and training to catch up on. In order to walk on the moon for Apollo 14, Shepard must work and train hard – possibly harder than any other astronaut.moreless
