By 1967, the Apollo programme was preparing for the ultimate prize of the space race, landing humans on the Moon. NASAs engineers, scientists and astronauts worked around the clock to conquer a new technology which would enable three astronauts to be launched into space at the same time. But as they tested the command module, NASA experienced its first disaster. On January 27, 1967, a fire broke out in the pressurised capsule of Apollo 1, resulting in the deaths of Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee. It was an unprecedented tragedy that changed NASA forever.
Apollo astronauts and engineers would have to wait another two years before their next significant triumph; Apollo 8. It was the most powerful rocket ever built and its mission of taking man to the dark side of the moon paved the way for NASAs ultimate goal. 8 years, 1 month and 22 days after John F. Kennedy challenged America to land a man on the moon, Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, with the eyes of the world upon them, triumphantly took their place in history.
