Grissom's Mercury Helmet Gallery


The sign accompanying the helmet. It reads

Helmet used on Mercury Flight July 21, 1961

Now, the Astronaut Hall of Fame claims to have the suit Grissom used on his Mercury flight, and it is displayed with a helmet. I suppose the AHOF sign merely claimed that it was the suit which Grissom wore and not the helmet, but it still leaves one wondering.
