Faux-pas in the book

You know, you can read over the text 5 million times, yet there is always something that leaks through the cracks. "Live TV From the Moon" is no exception. Sure, typos are virtually impossible to avoid, but I did make sure that the facts always remained as such. However, on page 27, paragraph 2 I erroneously state that there were 7 manned Mercury flights, not 6!

I have no idea how that got through: I can only guess I was thinking "7 astronauts" and so 7 I wrote. As Billy Joel sang, "You're only human!"
