Summary:
"In 1960, the U.S. and Soviet Union appeared to be on the brink of war. Desperate for information about their adversary's nuclear capability, the Americans sent CIA pilot Francis Gary Powers over the Soviet Union in the extraordinary U-2 spyplane. 11 miles above Earth, at the edge of space, Powers felt safe from attack--but he was wrong. From the fateful switch at the beginning of the mission to his exchange for a Soviet spy two years later, MAN, MOMENT, MACHINE chronicles Powers' fateful trip." -- Distributor Web site.
