|JumboJetPilot||RE: Apollo 1 Astronauts|
Thank you and happy New Year to you as well. The thing that's neat about those two particular video series is that they catch the astronauts at their canadid, personable moments, not when they were trying to pose for the public. Plus it is so fascinating how they paved the path to us getting to the moon. Interestingly, they also discuss how Gus Grissom would have been the first person to ever step on the moon. Anyway, I sure hope you enjoy them. God Bless you and all the best for 2010.

Just like you, the Apollo missions fascinate me. I think it's wonderful to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate price for the advancement of that project.
If you go onto iTunes (or probably many other online video retail sites) you can buy and download a series called "When We Left The Earth - The NASA missions". It has all kinds of behind the scenes footage of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo astronauts during serious moments, at candid times, videos and pictures of them with their families, etc. There are numerous videos of Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee as well as all the other astronauts. It is an absolutely fascinating video series that's broken up into 7 episodes.
If you're interested in this then you might also be interested in another series called "Moon Machines". You can also pick it up at iTunes and other online video sites). This particular series is less about the astronauts but more about the people who are the unknown-about heroes of the program - those who designed and tested the equipment that the astronauts needed to carry out their missions.
Anyway, I just wanted to pass this onto you because I noticed that you had very nice posts for each Apollo 1 astronaut and I think these two series, the first one in particular, would interest you. I hope you have a wonderful day. Take care.
