Space Center Houston 02 - Faith 7

Wow it's been a while since I posted anything!  Well to remedy that, here is a shot of the Mercury space capsule that Gordon Cooper flew in known as Faith 7.  Some info from Space Center Houston's Faith 7 page is as follows:

Piloted by Gordon Cooper, Faith 7 flew May 15-16, 1963, and was in orbit for 34 hours, 19 minutes and 49 seconds, orbiting the Earth 22.5 times. With that flight, Cooper set the record at the time for spaceflight by an American.
Cooper selected the name “Faith 7” for his spacecraft to express his faith in his fellow workers, his faith in the spaceflight hardware that had been so carefully tested, his faith in himself and his faith in God. 

I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.
