Mary Haverstick never intended to investigate the assassination of John F Kennedy. Her plan, after a chance encounter in an art gallery, was to make a documentary about 13 women who tried, and failed, to be accepted onto Nasa’s astronaut training programme in 1960.
Filmmaking is what Haverstick does, and the focus of her film was to be Jerrie Cobb, a pilot and Nobel Prize nominee who passed the physical tests for the Mercury missions into space, only to be told that the Moon was very much a man’s world.
