Rare and extremely early 1961 photograph of Virgil "Gus" Grissom as he is helped into his pressure suit for his flight into space, becoming the second American to do so! Grissom is one of the earliest NASA rock stars and his tragic death mas made him a legend. This is a dated Official Air Force photograph that is one of the earliest from the Space Race we have ever seen!
