Sixty years ago, Alan Shepard became the first American to venture into space. Since that time humans have walked on the Moon, flew 135 space shuttle missions, and taken the first commercial spaceflights. As NASA prepares to put the first woman and next man on the Moon, learn about the history of American spaceflight and get your questions answered by our panel of experts, including former NASA astronaut Mike Mullane, his son and author Patrick Mullane, acting NASA historian Brian Odom, and a current NASA astronaut!
