Gus Grissom: Liberty Bell 7, Gemini 3

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.
