Asked by Wiki User

The cause of the Apollo 1 fire was a flash fire that ignited in the pure oxygen environment of the capsule during a launch pad test. The fire was triggered by a spark from exposed wiring that ignited a flammable material in the spacecraft, leading to the tragic deaths of astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee. This incident prompted significant safety changes in the design and testing of spacecraft.

Sometimes one of the unmanned test missions is erroneously called Apollo 3. This was the AS202 mission which tested the command and service modules in suborbital flight. This was launched on August 26th 1966.
