Roger That! The Life of Astronaut Roger B. Chaffee

Poster Image of Roger That! The Life of Astronaut Roger B. Chaffee

Roger Bruce Chaffee was chosen to be one of America’s first Apollo astronauts as part of NASA’s program to send a man to the surface of the moon and back. Tragically, the 31-year old native of Grand Rapids died along with his two fellow crew members when a fire broke out inside their spacecraft during a routine test on January 27, 1967. The photo exhibition “Roger That! The Life of Astronaut Roger B. Chaffee,” honors the 50th anniversary of that tragedy and seeks to educate the public on his life and achievements. It is part of a two-day celebration that was hosted by Grand Valley State University and the Grand Rapids Public Museum on February 10 - 11, 2017.
