KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. --  Ed White III touches his father's name engraved in the Space Mirror Memorial at the KSC Visitor Complex.  White attended the ceremony held in remembrance of the astronauts lost in the Apollo 1 fire: Virgil "Gus" Grissom, Edward H. White II and Roger B. Chaffee.  Members of their families, along with KSC Director Bill Parsons, Associate Administrator for Space Operations William Gerstenmaier, President of the Astronauts Memorial Foundation Stephen Feldman and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Astronauts Memorial Foundation William Potter, attended the ceremony.  The mirror was designated as a national memorial by Congress and President George Bush in 1991 to honor fallen astronauts.  Their names are emblazoned on the monument’s 42-½-foot-high by 50-foot-wide black granite surface as if to be projected into the heavens. Photo credit:NASA/Kim Shiflett KSC-07pd0180
