“Lost and Found: the odyssey of Liberty Bell 7”
July 21 1961, America’s second man in space, Gus Grissom splashes down in the Atlantic after a 15 minute flight into space. The mission over, he awaits helicopter recovery. Within minutes of splashdown, a malfunction will see Grissom fighting for his life and his spacecraft lost to the depths of the ocean. Less than two hours after touching the darkness of space, Liberty Bell 7 lies locked in the darkness of the Atlantic, 3 miles deep, all but forgotten as the space programme moves forward.
