From the Earth to the Moon - Apollo One

We dedicate today’s Blog posting to the memories of the crew of Apollo One: Edward White, Command Pilot
Virgil "Gus" Grissom, Commander
Roger Chaffee, Pilot

Today on Far future Horizons we present the second episode of the acclaimed twelve-part HBO television miniseries “From the Earth to the Moon- Apollo One.

The second instalment of the series portrays the tragedy of the Apollo 1 fire from the perspective of its subsequent investigation by NASA and the US Congress. Its effects on key individuals are shown, including Harrison Storms of North American Aviation, Joseph Shea of NASA, astronaut Frank Borman charged with supporting NASA's investigation, and the widows of Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee.

“From the Earth to the Moon” is a twelve-part HBO television miniseries (1998) co-produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Tom Hanks, and Michael Bostick detailing the landmark Apollo expeditions to the Moon during the 1960s and early 1970s. Largely based on Andrew Chaikin's book, A Man on the Moon, the series is known for its accurate telling of the story of Apollo and outstanding special effects.

From The Earth to the Moon (the Signature Edition) is available on DVD from Amazon .com.
