Had no idea that the Liberty Bell 7 was on loan on Indy...geeking out hard right now! #gusgrissom #libertybell7 #mercury7 #therightstuff #nasafanboy

Lieutenant Colonel Virgil Ivan "Gus" Grissom (April 3, 1926 – January 27, 1967) was one of the original NASA Project Mercury astronauts, an Air Force test pilot, and a mechanical engineer. He was the second American to fly in space, and the first member of the NASA Astronaut Corps to fly in space twice.
As one of the Mercury Seven astronauts, Grissom was the pilot of the second suborbital flight, in the Liberty Bell 7. The hatch on the capsule blew off; causing the craft to fill with water and sink to the bottom of the ocean. His next flight was in the Project Gemini Program in a craft named the Molly Brown, which was a successful mission. He was killed along with fellow astronauts Ed White and Roger Chaffee during a pre-launch test for the Apollo 1 mission at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (then known as Cape Kennedy), Florida. He was the first of the Mercury Seven to die. He was a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross and, posthumously, the Congressional Space Medal of Honor.

Seeing the Liberty Bell 7 today was pretty incredible! Much more controversial than the preceding flight of Freedom 7, which made Alan Shepard the first American in space (and the first human to manually fly a spacecraft), the Liberty Bell 7 infamously sank to the sea floor after a faulty hatch exploded prematurely, leaving astronaut (and @lifeatpurdue boilermaker!) Gus Grissom floundering in the water. Recovered after almost 40 years sitting 3 miles below the surface of the Atlantic and restored to its former glory, it now sits on display!
I can now say that I’ve seen all 6 of the manned Mercury capsules - just 5 Gemini, 5 Apollo, and 1 Space Shuttle until I’ve seen all of NASA’s historic space vehicles!

School field trip today with my son and his class. This is the Mercury capsule "Liberty Bell 7", piloted by astronaut Lieutenant Colonel Vigil I. "Gus" Grissom for 15 minutes in space on July 21, 1961. The Liberty Bell 7 was pulled from a depth of 15,000 feet in the Atlantic Ocean -- 3,000 feet deeper than the final resting place of the Titanic. #indianapolischildrensmuseum #indy #indianapolis #visitindy #libertybellseven #libertybell7 #indygrammers #igersindy #mercury7 #mercuryastronauts #therightstuff #hoosiergrammars #hailpurdue #purdueastronaut

America's second man in space and the third human in space, Gus Grissom 1926-1967. This is his spacesuit worn on July 21, 1961 during his sub-orbital flight, Liberty Bell 7. He tragically died January 27, 1967 during a pre-launch test for Apollo 1 with fellow astronauts Ed White and Roger Chaffee. #apollo1

Episode 68 is out, link in Bio. I got a little too into reading this book and realized I should probably finish editing the podcast and get it uploaded for today. I'm thinking of doing monthly or fortnightly book discussion episodes. Comment and tag anyone you know that would like that!

Verdict in the so-called "Monkey Trial" and #LibertyBell7 propels #astronaut #GusGrissom into #space and the history books. It's @timerewind for #July21.

So cool! I am related to Gus Grissom and the Liberty Bell 7 is here. #libertybell7 #myfamousrelative

Seeing the Liberty Bell 7 today was pretty incredible. Lost at sea for 30 years before being accidentally discovered and hauled up from three miles down. Nearly killed Gus Grissom the first time. #hometownhero #libertybell7 #NASA #gusgrissom (NASA what the hell were you thinking with these escape hatches. This one exploded off and the one that killed Capt. Grissom only opened from the outside. Why.)
