Virgil "Gus" Grissom: When Liberty Bell 7 lifted off from Cape Canaveral, on July 21, 1961, Gus Grissom became the second American in space. His spacecraft was equipped with a large viewing window, manual controls and an explosively actuated side escape hatch. Although the mission was a huge success, Liberty Bell 7 was lost when, after splashdown, the hatch blew off, causing the spacecraft to fill with water and sink.
