Read the link in its entirety. Says Betty Grissom was pushing for the capsule to be displayed at the 30 year anniversary of the fire but was declined. KurtDid something change? Last I heard, some of the family members were uncomfortable with displaying the capsule. All they were going to display was the door - the rest is to continue to reside in Langley.
If that is true, I can see her point. In the movie the "Right Stuff" they made it look like Gus messed up on his Mercury flight when he did not. She may have feared some ivory tower bastard would pontificate some stupid theory and open old wounds upThat is interesting since I thought I read some time back that Betty Grissom had been opposed to the recovery of Liberty Bell 7 from the ocean floor. I can't see how she would prefer having the capsule her husband died in put on public display.
