50th Anniversary of Apollo 1 Disaster
Fifty years ago today, January 27, 1967, a fire on the launchpad during a test killed the entire crew of Apollo 1: Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, Edward H. White II, and Roger B. Chaffee. Their sacrifice has not been forgotten. You can find NASA's report on their Day of Remembrance here.
