Scope & Content: The original release sheet reads: ASTRONAUT DISASTER Apollo astronauts Roger Chaffee, Edward White, and Gus Grissom are all killed in a flash-fire aboard their grounded space capsule. Investigators theorize perhaps a short circuit or electrical overload sparked the blaze. The first Apollo flight was scheduled for February. EMBASSY BOMBINGS Six Yugoslav missions throughout the United States and Canada are damaged in a series of bomb blasts. In Washington: heavy damage and a six-year old boy flung from bed. In New York: the consulate general, off Fifth Avenue, rocked by a bomb rolled under a gate at a service entrance. One fireman dies of heart attack at scene. POPE PAUL ORDAINS In the Vatican's Sistine Chapel, Pope Paul presides at the ordination of 16 new priests. It's only the second time in recent centuries for a pope to preside and ordain: usually Bishops confer the sacrament. The candidates are unique: All between the ages of 33 and 62. FROZEN CORPSES The Cryonic Society of Phoenix, Arizona, believes that life after death is possible. The freezing of bodies immediately after death is their method. The corpses are stored in a special capsule. One man has already been frozen but most scientists are skeptical. AIRBOATS One of the newest allied weapons in the marshland fighting in Vietnam is the "Aircat." It's an airboat which skims the surface of marshland at up to thirty-five miles an hour. Driven by a conventional airplane propeller, the boat carries a crew of six, and operates on only four inches of water. NUCLEAR SHIP The world's first floating nuclear power station debuts at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The "Sturgis" is a converted Liberty Ship and carries ten million watts of power, enough for a city of 20 thousand people. She'll be used both in military operations and disaster areas. CHICAGO SNOWSTORM Chicago and the entire midwest is belted by a blizzard which dumps two feet of snow on the windy city. Sixty-eight deaths are traced to the storm, ten thousand vehicles were abandoned, train and airline operations halted, and widespread looting and fires developed.
