    It was nothing to do with Race Relations

    None at all

    In fact it wasn't until the Eighties when the first non white went into space

    The actual truth is, one African American Qualified for the Apollo program, bit he didn't just cut it

    Ed Dwight Junior

    An Ace Fighter Pilot btw and well decorated

    That is a fact

    Had he the " Right Stuff ", we could be talking about him instead of Neil Armstrong

    There were 9 trips to the Moon involving 24 men, 3 of whom went twice.  They were all regarded as white but I don't think we have full family trees or genetic analysis to say any more.  Ed Dwight was selected for astronaut training and its hard to say whether is failure to be selected to fly in space was due to his personal qualities or prejudice against him.  Chuck Yeager who was in charge of astronaut training in the early 60s is said to have been opposed to having a black person on the course.

    Oh no! We must put that right. We need a space program for blacks only!

    It was a segregated time so not likely they were air force pilots
