For 84 days—from November 16, 1973, to February 8, 1974—mission commander Jerry Carr orbited the Earth on board the American space station Skylab 4, setting a new record for time in space. Had the Apollo 19 mission not been cancelled, Carr could have been the 16th man to walk on the Moon. Covering his record-setting time in space as well as his training in the U.S. Marine Corps, his career with NASA, and his retirement years, this biography brings the story of Gerald P. Carr to life.  Includes DVD.
