    Description

    Faith 7 (Mercury-Atlas 9) Flown American Flag Signed by Mission Pilot Gordon Cooper. An 8" x 5.75" cloth U.S. flag signed on the lowest white stripe: "This flag was flown on Faith 7, May 15-16, 1963 Gordon Cooper". Cooper (1927-2004) was one of the original "Mercury Seven" astronauts selected. This was the final single-astronaut mission of the Mercury series and, by far, the longest U.S. flight to that date; it consisted of twenty-two orbits and lasted one day and ten hours. The Faith 7 capsule is currently on display at the Space Center in Houston, Texas. Excellent condition and framed between two pieces of glass to an overall 15" x 12".
