INVESTIGATION Investigation by the Witness Statement Panel was initiated Janu when the Panel re­ ceived nine (9) miscellaneous written statements and twenty-six (26) "eye-witness" statements from the NASA-KSC Security Office.

These were written or taped statements obtained the evening of the Apollo incident. The House conducted its investigation through the Subcommittee on NASA Oversight of the Committee on Science and Astronautics.

The Apollo 1 was to be the first manned space mission for NASA's lunar landing program. The target launch date was February 21st,but during a "plugs-out" test on January 27th, a cabin fire inside the Command Service Module killed three crew members (Virgil "Gus" Grissom, Edward H.

White, and Roger B. Chaffee). After the accident, NASA set up the Apollo Accident Review board to. Apollo 1 (AS),Congressional Investigation Report. This three volume, soft cover report is the definitive public analysis of the accident that cost the lives of.

Intensive investigations into the disaster followed, with NASA convening the Apollo Accident Review Board. All manned flights were cancelled and the Apollo programme and dreams of landing on the Moon were put on hold.

The fire was caused by an electrical fault, and the Review Board pinpointed major issues with the design of the Command Module. The Apollo 1 fire was a difficult time for NASA and its astronauts, but the improvements in astronaut safety allowed the agency to complete the rest of the program with no further fatalities.

The Apollo program was put on hold while an exhaustive investigation was made of the accident. It was concluded that the most likely cause was a spark from a short circuit in a bundle of wires that ran to the left and just in front of Grissom's seat.

A better Apollo capsule was born from the accident. “I’m always asked if I was nervous about that flight,” said Cunningham, the lunar module pilot on Apollo 7, which marked NASA’s return. NASA launched an investigation into the accident, which found that there were many safety hazards because of poor design—most notably, the pure-oxygen atmosphere and the hatch design—and neglectful assembly.

NASA learned from the mistakes made on Apollo 1 and made drastic changes in the way spacecrafts were designed and built. On JNeil Armstrong became the first person to step on the surface of the moon. But two years prior to that momentous occasion, tragedy would strike the space program: a fire inside a capsule during a launch rehearsal, killing all three men on.

"Apollo" by Charles Murray and Catherine Bly Cox covers the Apollo 1 fire in a fair bit of detail. One result of the accident was that the Astronaut Office became even more integrated into the design and development of the Apollo vehicles (Figure ).
