At the height of the Cold War in 1959, America fears it is a nation in decline as the Soviet Union dominates the space race. But, the U.S. government has a solution -- put a man in space. Newly-formed NASA is given the monumental task, and a group of the nation's best engineers estimate they'll need decades to accomplish the feat... but they only have two years.
