Vatican Observatory director celebrates astronaut Roger B. Chaffee's birthday
Today we celebrate the birthday of Grand Rapids native son and NASA astronaut Roger B. Chaffee. This year also marks the 50 year anniversary of his death. Chaffee was killed January 27, 1967 , along with Virgil "Gus" Grissom and Edward White, when a fire broke out during a launch pad test of the Apollo 1 command module. We talk with Brother Guy Consolmagno, Director of the Vatican Observatory in Castel Gandolfo, Italy about the legacy of Chaffee and the place where science and religion meet.
