Found a short history of the ill-fated Apollo 1 mission. Three astronauts, Command Pilot Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White II, and Pilot Roger B. Chaffee, perished on the launchpad in a fire on January 27, 1967. There are rarely seen photos, some which people may find upsetting (charred spacesuits).

Nestled among horrific footage of the Hindenburg crash and a woman imprisoned in an underground room are bizarre, forgotten pieces of history – including a 10-stone toddler. Now newsreel archive British Pathé has opened these vaults to the public, uploading all 85,000 of its films to Youtube as a gift to the public. The firm was an iconic part of British life from 1896 to 1976, when for some the dramatic black-and-white reports aired in cinemas would be their only source of news. General manager Alastair White described the films as a ‘treasure trove’ and said: ‘Whether you’re looking for coverage of the Royal Family, the Titanic, the destruction of the Hindenburg, or quirky stories about British pastimes, it’ll be there on our channel. You can lose yourself for hours.’
