I still remember sitting at the barber watching has the events unfolded. It’s one of those things that you always remember where you were and what you were doing. I was watching our astronauts reach out into the stars taking a first along with them, teacher turned astronaut Christa McAuliffe.
Before searching YouTube for a clip I can still hear those haunting words in my mind “Roger, go at throttle up”
The United States changed that next moment. It was reminded exactly how costly space exploration is and could be.
So today I take a few moments to honor those fallen heroes of STS-51-L Space Shuttle Challenger.
