Dwight was handpicked to diversify NASA's astronaut corps in the early 1960s, but he never flew.

For a little more on Dwight and some links for further reading and to Dwight's sculpture gallery, check out the latest blog post over on Vintage Space.

And there's loads more space history on Vintage Space, so check it out

My book, Breaking the Chains of Gravity, is now available for (pre)order on Amazon! UK release is October 22 and US release is January 12, which I think is also the Canadian, Australian, and Indian release.
