Liftoff #83: Apollo 7

This week we’re posting a special episode of Liftoff, focusing on the Apollo 7 mission, which landed 50 years ago today. Back in October 1968, Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele and Walter Cunningham spent 11 days in space working the bugs out of the Apollo spacecraft on its first crewed mission. The vehicle performed perfectly; the crew did not.
