Astronaut Edward H. White II rides life raft in the foreground. Astronaut Roger B. Chaffee sits in hatch of the boilerplate model of the spacecraft.
Astronaut Virgil I. Grissom, third member of the crew, waits inside the spacecraft. Each of these errors provided an important lesson for the Apollo program moving forward, and resulted in major improvements to the spacecraft design.
These lessons may not have been learned without such a tragedy, and they helped American astronauts win the race to the moon in with Apollo If the fire hadn't happened when it did, where it did, these dangerous design flaws may have gone unnoticed until it was too late, and we may have sent astronauts into orbit—or worse, to the moon—doomed to their deaths.
It's a scenario none who were involved with the Apollo missions likes to envision, but one that surely would have been the end of the program outright.
Instead, 18 months after the fire, NASA launched Apollo 7, completing the mission intended for Apollo 1. Eight months and three missions later, Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon.
And in , the crew of Apollo 15 secretly carried a small statue of a fallen astronaut, and a plaque, to the lunar surface. It was a memorial to the astronauts who lost their lives in the pursuit of space exploration, who paved the way for crews like Apollo 15 to visit the moon, and return safely back home.
Somewhere on the surface of the moon today, this plaque still sits, with eight names carved into it. Among the names listed: Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee.
As for my grandfather, I never got a chance to meet him. After leaving NASA at the conclusion of the Apollo program in , he enjoyed just four years of retirement before he died from pancreatic cancer.
But in my family home, in Canada, there's a memorial of our own: to Henry, and to the men he tried to save. We keep his medal, for exceptional bravery, in a humble wooden frame.

Veteran astronaut Gus Grissom, first American spacewalker Ed White and rookie Roger Chaffee left-to-right. Heat and Ashes: The Untold Story of the Apollo 1 Fire.
Six rescuers tried to save the Apollo 1 astronauts from a suffocating, fiery death. Procedures for emergency escape called for a minimum of 90 seconds.
But in practice the crew had never accomplished the routines in the minimum time. Grissom had to lower White's headrest so White could reach above and behind his left shoulder to actuate a ratchet-type device that would release the first of series of latches.
According to one source, White had actually made part of a full turn with the ratchet before he was overcome by smoke. Spacecraft technicians ran towards the sealed Apollo, but before they could reach it, the command module ruptured.
Flame and thick black clouds of smoke billowed out, filling the room. Now a new danger arose. Many feared that the fire might set off the launch escape system atop Apollo.
Engineering changes were still in progress as NASA prepared for the countdown test. On his last visit home in Texas, Jan.
His wife, Betty, asked what he was going to do with it. He hung it on the flight simulator after he arrived at the Cape. The morning of the test, the crew suited up and detected a foul odor in the breathing oxygen, which took about an hour to fix.
Then the communications system acted up. Shouting through the noise, Grissom vented: "How are we going to get to the moon if we can't talk between two or three buildings?

These tests were negative. Once all outstanding CSM hardware problems were fixed, the reassembled spacecraft finally completed a successful altitude chamber test with Schirra's backup crew on December Schirra made it clear that he was not pleased with what he had seen," and that he later warned Grissom and Shea that "there's nothing wrong with this ship that I can point to, but it just makes me uncomfortable.
Something about it just doesn't ring right," and that Grissom should get out at the first sign of trouble.
Following the successful altitude tests, the spacecraft was removed from the altitude chamber on January 3, , and mated to its Saturn IB launch vehicle on pad 34 on January 6.
Grissom said in a February interview that NASA could not eliminate risk despite precautions: . An awful lot of people have devoted more effort than I can describe to [make] Project Mercury and its successors, as safe as humanly possible But we also recognize that there remains a great deal of risk, especially in initial operations, regardless of planning.
You just can't forecast all the things that could happen, or when they could happen. In every other business there are failures, and they are bound to happen sooner or later", he added.
You sort of have to put that out of your mind. There's always a possibility that you can have a catastrophic failure, of course; this can happen on any flight; it can happen on the last one as well as the first one.
So, you just plan as best you can to take care of all these eventualities, and you get a well-trained crew and you go fly. The launch simulation on January 27, , on pad 34, was a "plugs-out" test to determine whether the spacecraft would operate nominally on simulated internal power while detached from all cables and umbilicals.
Passing this test was essential to making the February 21 launch date. The test was considered non-hazardous because neither the launch vehicle nor the spacecraft was loaded with fuel or cryogenics , and all pyrotechnic systems explosive bolts were disabled.
The accident investigation found this odor not to be related to the fire. Three minutes after the count was resumed, the hatch installation was started.
The hatch consisted of three parts: a removable inner hatch, which stayed inside the cabin; a hinged outer hatch, which was part of the spacecraft's heat shield; and an outer hatch cover, which was part of the boost protective cover enveloping the entire command module to protect it from aerodynamic heating during launch, and from launch escape rocket exhaust in the event of a launch abort.
The boost hatch cover was partially, but not fully, latched in place because the flexible boost protective cover was slightly distorted by some cabling run under it to provide the simulated internal power.
The spacecraft's fuel cell reactants were not loaded for this test. After the hatches were sealed, the air in the cabin was replaced with pure oxygen at Movement by the astronauts was detected by the spacecraft's inertial measurement unit and the astronauts' biomedical sensors, and also indicated by increases in oxygen spacesuit flow, and sounds from Grissom's stuck-open microphone.
There was no evidence to identify the movement, or whether it was related to the fire. The stuck microphone was part of a problem with the communications loop connecting the crew, the Operations and Checkout Building , and the Complex 34 blockhouse control room.
The poor communications led Grissom to remark: "How are we going to get to the Moon if we can't talk between two or three buildings?
Nine seconds later at This was immediately followed at The transmission lasted 5. Some blockhouse witnesses said that they saw White on the television monitors, reaching for the inner hatch release handle  as flames in the cabin spread from left to right.
Flames and gases then rushed outside the command module through open access panels to two levels of the pad service structure. Intense heat, dense smoke, and ineffective gas masks designed for toxic fumes rather than heavy smoke hampered the ground crew's attempts to rescue the men.
There were fears the command module had exploded, or soon would, and that the fire might ignite the solid fuel rocket in the launch escape tower above the command module, which would have likely killed nearby ground personnel, and possibly have destroyed the pad.
As the pressure was released by the cabin rupture, the convective rush of air caused the flames to spread across the cabin, beginning the second phase.
The third phase began when most of the oxygen was consumed and was replaced with atmospheric air, essentially quenching the fire, but causing high concentrations of carbon monoxide and heavy smoke to fill the cabin, and large amounts of soot to be deposited on surfaces as they cooled.
It took five minutes for the pad workers to open all three hatch layers, and they could not drop the inner hatch to the cabin floor as intended, so they pushed it out of the way to one side.
Although the cabin lights remained lit, they were at first unable to find the astronauts through the dense smoke. As the smoke cleared, they found the bodies, but were not able to remove them.
The fire had partly melted Grissom's and White's nylon space suits and the hoses connecting them to the life support system. Grissom had removed his restraints and was lying on the floor of the spacecraft.
White's restraints were burned through, and he was found lying sideways just below the hatch. It was determined that he had tried to open the hatch per the emergency procedure, but was not able to do so against the internal pressure.
Chaffee was found strapped into his right-hand seat, as procedure called for him to maintain communication until White opened the hatch. Because of the large strands of melted nylon fusing the astronauts to the cabin interior, removing the bodies took nearly 90 minutes.
Deke Slayton was possibly the first NASA official to examine the spacecraft interior. Slayton said of Grissom and White's bodies, "It is very difficult for me to determine the exact relationships of these two bodies.
They were sort of jumbled together, and I couldn't really tell which head even belonged to which body at that point. I guess the only thing that was real obvious is that both bodies were at the lower edge of the hatch.
They were not in the seats. They were almost completely clear of the seat areas. As a result of the in-flight failure of the Gemini 8 mission on March 17, , NASA Deputy Administrator Robert Seamans wrote and implemented Management Instruction This modified NASA's existing accident procedures, based on military aircraft accident investigation, by giving the Deputy Administrator the option of performing independent investigations of major failures, beyond those for which the various Program Office officials were normally responsible.
It declared, "It is NASA policy to investigate and document the causes of all major mission failures which occur in the conduct of its space and aeronautical activities and to take appropriate corrective actions as a result of the findings and recommendations.
Webb asked President Lyndon B. Johnson to allow NASA to handle the investigation according to its established procedure, promising to be truthful in assessing blame, and to keep the appropriate leaders of Congress informed.
Thompson, which included astronaut Frank Borman , spacecraft designer Maxime Faget , and six others. On February 1, Cornell University professor Frank A.
Long left the board,  and was replaced by Dr. Robert W. Van Dolah, of the U. Bureau of Mines. After thorough stereo photographic documentation of the CM interior, the board ordered its disassembly using procedures tested by disassembling the identical CM, and conducted a thorough investigation of every part.
The board also reviewed the astronauts' autopsy results and interviewed witnesses. Seamans sent Webb weekly status reports of the investigation's progress, and the board issued its final report on April 5, According to the Board, Grissom suffered severe third-degree burns on over one-third of his body and his spacesuit was mostly destroyed.
White suffered third-degree burns on almost half of his body and a quarter of his spacesuit had melted away. Chaffee suffered third-degree burns over almost a quarter of his body and a small portion of his spacesuit was damaged.
The autopsy report confirmed that the primary cause of death for all three astronauts was cardiac arrest caused by high concentrations of carbon monoxide.
Burns suffered by the crew were not believed to be major factors, and it was concluded that most of them had occurred postmortem.
Asphyxiation occurred after the fire melted the astronauts' suits and oxygen tubes, exposing them to the lethal atmosphere of the cabin.
The review board identified several major factors which combined to cause the fire and the astronauts' deaths: . The review board determined that the electrical power momentarily failed at GMT, and found evidence of several electric arcs in the interior equipment.
They were unable to conclusively identify a single ignition source. They determined that the fire most likely started near the floor in the lower left section of the cabin, close to the Environmental Control Unit.
The board noted that a silver-plated copper wire, running through an environmental control unit near the center couch, had become stripped of its Teflon insulation and abraded by repeated opening and closing of a small access door.
