This is the Mercury Redstone Rocket Display Model by Old Modern Handicrafts.

Specification: Item# AJ126 - 1x1x16 inches

The Mercury Redstone Rocket holds a pivotal place in the chronicles of space exploration, symbolizing the genesis of America's human spaceflight endeavors. Developed as part of Project Mercury in the late 1950s and early 1960s, this historic rocket served as the launch vehicle for the first American astronauts into space. Notably, on May 5, 1961, the Mercury Redstone 3 (MR-3) mission, also known as the Freedom 7, propelled astronaut Alan Shepard on a suborbital flight, marking America's maiden human spaceflight. This groundbreaking journey lasted just over 15 minutes, propelling Shepard to an altitude of 116 miles before safely returning to Earth. The success of the MR-3 mission laid the groundwork for subsequent Mercury missions and paved the path for NASA's ambitious space exploration endeavors, establishing the United States as a significant player in the race to conquer the cosmos.
