The Right Stuff is an upcoming American drama television series, which is based on the 1979 book of the same name by Tom Wolfe. It is set to premiere at the streaming service Disney+ on October 9th, 2020.

This series might be good.:)
But the film from 1983 was and is still great. :D
And the book from 1979 is one of my all time favorite. :cool:

Hope you dont mind this bit of nostalgia. Back in 1963 (I was just turned 8) a family friend in West Germany sent us a Christmas parcel (I learnt later this was usually done for relatives in East Germany so Britain and Germany have not changed much in nearly 60years). My part of the parcel was a big orange box containing an 18inch long truck/trailer carrying an Atlas missile and Mercury missile.
I still have the toy minus its fragile box but Ebay provides these photos. It got me hooked on space stuff which I have collected ever since. It is a toy so the TEL is fictional but its still a nice Atlas with detachable Mercury capsule.

Imagine a crossover between the two series - For all mankind and The right stuff...

For all kind men, who have the right stuff. :p

while you are waiting try a bit of 1967 space drama here.
I suggest getting your favourite childhood tipple and snack to hand while you read
