Roger B. Chaffee, an astronaut and Grand Rapids native, is being honored in an upcoming event, titled, “Roger That.”  Chaffee died during testing on Apollo One in 1967.  Grand Valley State University and the Grand Rapids Public Museum are hosting a two day symposium.

The  two day symposium entitled, “Roger That”, will be held in February in honor of Grand Rapids native, Roger B. Chaffee.  Organizers say the date is tied to Chaffee’s birthday and of course, his death on Apollo One in 1967.
