This is my Lego adaptation of the Mercury Freedom 7 capsule. This mission was the first manned American space flight and was launched on May 5, 1961. This mission was piloted by Alan Shepard and lasted in total a time of 15 minutes and 22 seconds. The Mercury program was the U.S.'s first step in the Space Race and this mission started our amazing journey towards the moon.
This set features an opening hatch on the space craft and a detailed interior. The capsule has enough room for the Alan Shepard figure. This set is minifigure scale and I tried my best to make it proportional to the actual capsule.
