Movie Night

Mercury 13

Wednesday evening, 5 February 2020

IIASL, Leiden

The Netherlands Space Society (NVR) and International Institute of Air and Space Law (IIASL) are proud to present the movie ā€œMercury 13ā€.

The Apollo era has played an immense role in the development of the space industry. In a very short period of time, a great number of people achieved amazing things.

Because so many things were done in such a short time, some endeavours might not be as well known. Mercury 13 tells just such a story: 13 women that received astronaut training in a time when only men were allowed to fly. Come find out what secrets are still to be learned about this time period in space history!
