Missions We're Glad Didn't Happen: Grissom, Borman and Aldrin Fly Apollo 11, 1969


A proposed mission patch. (This was originally album art by Smog; if you sue me, I'll take it down.) I'm no artist. 

So here's some alternate NASA history, had Deke Slayton won the lottery, left NASA temporarily, and crowned Wally Schirra as the man in charge of mission selections. Wally, of course, was known to have a bit of fun and would have stuck Gus Grissom, Frank Borman and Buzz Aldrin together. On a lunar mission. In the same capsule and lunar module. For days. God help us all.
