In this handout photo provided by RR Auction of Amherst, N.H. Monday Nov. 18, 2013 is a letter from Mercury 7 astronaut Virgil “Gus” Grissom to his mother. The letter recounts how he and five of his fellow Mercury 7 astronauts resented John Glenn for getting the nod to be the first American to orbit the earth. The letter, to be auctioned off this month by RR Auction also captures Grissom grumbling about being named a controller for the second space shot: "I don't get any of the credit and if anything goes wrong, I'll get a good deal of the blame."(AP Photo/RR Auction) less
