Astronomical Calendar: 2017 January

Fifty years ago this month (on 1967 January 27), NASA astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee were killed in a cabin fire during a launch rehearsal test of their Apollo 1 space capsule. This was the first of three major tragedies which took the lives of NASA astronauts, the other two being the explosion of the Challenger Space Shuttle shortly after launch and the loss of the Columbia Space Shuttle upon Earth atmospheric re-entry. A near-tragedy was averted, during the Apollo 13 mission to the Moon.
