GORDON COOPER (1927-2004) shattered Schirra's record on May 15-16, 1963, orbiting the earth 22 times while manning Mercury-Atlas Faith 7. Cooper was the first American to spend more than one day in space in a flight that took 34 hours and 19 minutes. The first American in space was ALAN SHEPARD (1923-1998). He was aboard the Freedom 7 capsule atop a Mercury-Redstone 3 on May 5, 1961. Shepard later walked on the Moon (and made a golf shot there) as Commander of the Apollo 14 mission. SCOTT CARPENTER repeated Glenn's feat on May 24, 1962, making three orbits aboard the Mercury-Atlas Aurora 7. Tape remnant at right blank area touches "tt" in Scott and "C" in Carpenter. Otherwise, Fine condition.
