Why the name “Mercury One”?
The history of “Mercury” comes from the late 1950s when the American government was closely watching the success of the Soviet space program. While President Eisenhower was sure that American technology was superior to that of the Soviet Union’s, they had already launched Sputnik successfully. Their space program appeared to be success after success while ours appeared unorganized and full of failure.
The course of the space program, and in many ways that of the United States was forever changed when NASA launched the Mercury Space Program. The Mercury program learned from the past and provided the bridge to our future.
In many ways, our organization, Mercury One, is going to do the same thing. We will take and learn from the lessons of the past by getting our history right and instilling the values and ethics of the Judeo-Christian world and prepare us and the upcoming generation for the tomorrows yet to come.
