February 1, 1978, the first group of space shuttle astronauts, twenty-nine men and six women, were introduced to the world. Many of them would make history, the first American woman and the first African American in space. Four would die on Challenger. USAF Colonel Mike Mullane was a member of this astronaut class, and Riding Rockets is his story.
