#Apollo1 Crew Were Just Cool Guys


I know everyone likes to share photos of Gus, Ed, and Roger looking all badass and the epitome of "the right stuff" and all, but I gotta tell you, this is one of my favorite photos. Just lounging in the pool during water egress training.


Never forget that they were probably guys that liked to hang out and have a good time and enjoy a good laugh like you and I. Yes, we made them heroes (apropriately so) because they paid the ultimate price - their lives - in the name of the advancement of space exploration.
But they were men.
They were human.
And I, for one, like to remember that part of them.
