Earlier this week, in the article about the World Showcase galleries, specifically The American Adventure’s National Treasures exhibit, I inadvertently implied that the moon rock on display belonged to the astronaut Gus Grissom.

Virgil “Gus” Grissom” was tragically killed alongside Ed White and Roger B. Chaffee during a training for the first mission of the Apollo program. The Apollo program did eventually reach the moon, long after we had lost the Apollo 1 crew. Gus Grissom, who had been a part of both the Mercury and Gemini programs, was presented with this moon rock posthumously.

The integrity, and quality, of the articles of the Main Street Gazette is of the utmost importance to me, and I apologize if the original article caused any confusion.
