Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The Space Race - Apollo I Tragedy. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee are killed on the launch pad when a flash fire engulfs their command module during testing for the first Apollo/Saturn mission. They are the first U.S. astronauts to die in the line of duty.

Even before tragedy struck, the command module was criticized for a number of potentially hazardous design flaws, including the use of a more combustible, 100% oxygen atmosphere in the cockpit, an escape hatch that opened inward instead of outward, faulty wiring and plumbing, and the presence of flammable material.

During a test Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee were strapped into their seats when a voltage fluctuation occurred. Grissom was heard shouting "Fire!" and White followed immediately with "We've got a fire in the cockpit." Screaming was heard before the communications cut out. It was over in 30 seconds.

The presentation covers the following:
