On this day in 1967 Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee lost their lives in a test launch of Apollo 1. A short happened in the CM and sparked a fire. There was 100% oxygen in the capsule. 50 years ago. There lives were not lost in vain. I believe if it was not for this accident man would not of landed on the moon in July 1969. This accident caused NASA to overhaul the CM and add more safety feature. They had to look at themselves in the mirror. One of the issues was the astronauts could not open the hatch from the inside. They burned alive. God Speed.
