The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story

Although the wives were (and still are) less well known, their stories are told quite frankly. They deserve a lot of respect and credit for the way they conducted themselves in the public eye during a very difficult, challenging and exciting time in their lives.

A particularly convincing statement comes from astrowife Barbara Cernan, who remarked, “If you think going to the Moon is hard, try staying at home.”

This was an exceptionally interesting and at times shocking read about a topic that has been sidelined in recounting the history of the Space Race.
