[TV HIGHLIGHTS] AFKN - Mercury 13: The Secret Astronauts

In the 1960s, America뭩 first astronauts, the Mercury 7, led the United States into space. What Americans didn뭪 know was that 13 women had also qualified, but never got the chance to fly because of their sex. The documentary, combining rare archival footage of the Mercury 13 with interviews with three of the surviving candidates, is a fascinating salute to the female astronauts. Saturday, 10 a.m.
