On Jan. 27, 1967, Apollo 1 crew members Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee lost their lives in a flash fire while rehearsing the launch.

After keeping the command module locked up for 50 years, NASA put the burned capsule on public display at the Kennedy Space Center as a tribute to the astronauts.
