Lily Koppel’s new book looks at how a hidden group of women defined America’s history — astronaut wives. Wives of famous astronauts like Neil Armstrong and “Buzz” Aldrin, who walked on the moon in 1969, talked about the pressures of being married to these high-profile men and looking like “Stepford wives,” maintaining the image of a perfect marriage and perfect family. Fast-forward 30 years, and we see these space heroes in the news again, but this time battling alcoholism and divorce.
