The launch of astronaut Gordon Cooper's Faith 7 space capsule on May 15, 1963 was the final mission in Project Mercury, NASA's first human spaceflight program. His nearly 40-hour flight was longer than the previous five Mercury missions combined, and he became the first astronaut to sleep in space. He later returned to space in 1965 in Gemini 5, and broke space endurance records that would ultimately help NASA get to the moon in 1969. 1963 in Photos | National Geographic Channel
