This is the 200th post to SpaceGet.

Memorial to Virgil "Gus" Grissom, with footage from his flight on Mercury-Redstone 4 / Liberty Bell 7, including the sinking of the capsule (caused by the hatch blowing prematurely, though Grissom had not hit the detonation plunger); also with footage from his return to space aboard Gemini 3, and a photo of him boarding AS-204/Apollo 1 before his death in a command module fire.

STS-51-C Launch

(Note on numbering: STS-51-B was bumped to after STS-51-D. Confusing. Also, there's no NSS-archived narration for STS-51-C, possibly because this mission carried a classified payload.)

STS-41-B (STS-11) with Narration

(Note on mission numbering: this would have been STS-11 (STS-10 was cancelled) but a new mission numbering scheme was adopted -- first digit is fiscal year offset (4=1984), second digit is launch site (1=KSC), letter represents launch order (B=2nd launch). This numbering scheme ended with the destruction of Challenger.)
