Apollo 1 Hills
The Apollo 1 Hills are three vastly separated hills located in Gusev Crater, on Mars. They were photographed from a great distance by the Spirit Rover. They are named in memory of the three astronauts who died on the launchpad of Apollo 1.
- Grissom Hill (after Gus Grissom) is located 7.5 km (4.7 mi) southwest of Columbia Memorial Station
- Chaffee Hill (after Roger Chaffee) is located 14.3 km (8.9 mi) south-southwest of Columbia Memorial Station
- White Hill (after Edward White) is located 11.2 km (7.0 mi) northwest of Columbia Memorial Station
The International Astronomical Union has yet to officially designate the hills with the names of the astronauts.
