Storyboard Text

  • It is a pleasure to announce what will be happening in the near future. We are planning on sending men into space.
  • We are ready for the test flight. 
  • FIRE!
  • President John F. Kennedy is announcing a project that he has been working on. He has been planning on bringing man into space.
  • The crew, Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee, finally do a launch test in preparation for what was to come after waiting for hours to fix the problems in the spacecraft. 
  • Everything was going well until the words "I've got a fire in the cockpit!" was heard coming from Grissom. A fire had started and was eating up all of the oxygen in the spacecraft and mission control started to hear screams.
  • Technicians ran to try and help the crew out of the fire, but they were too late and lost the crew to the flames.
  • Quickly, they are still in there!
  • No one made it out of the space craft alive. It was a sad day for all Americans as news of what happened spread. 
  • The crew did not make it out of the fire in time, but their legacy lives on. Because of this tragedy, all space missions after this one became a lot safer and more advanced allowing them to finally succeed. While this was not a happy event, the crew did not die in vain.
