Remembering the Apollo 1 Crew

Remembering the Apollo 1 Crew: On Jan. 27, 1967, veteran astronaut Gus Grissom, first American spacewalker Ed White and rookie Roger Chaffee (left-to-right) were preparing for what was to be the first manned Apollo flight. The astronauts were sitting atop the launch pad for a pre-launch test when a fire broke out in their Apollo capsule. The investigation into the fatal accident

Hearing this audio at the point of when the fire started at the 1:05 mark gave me chills.  They will never be forgotten as well as for those who lost their lives prior to and after.
