Remembering Apollo 1

Click the arrow to watch ABC News science editor Jules Bergman on January 28, 1967.

Test pilots die with almost distressing regularity. It's part of the business, and they accept the risk.

The above video aired on ABC News the day after a fire in the spacecraft took the lives of Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee on January 27, 1967. It shows you the astronauts not only in their final days, but also gives you a window into a pivotal moment in our space history.
