20 years ago

It was 20 years ago today when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded killing Christa McAuliffe Commander Dick Scobee, pilot Mike Smith and astronauts Ellison Onizuka, Judy Resnik, Ron McNair and Greg Jarvis also died.

I remember just finishing a High School final when the principal came over pa and told us about the tragedy. Let's hope they, as well as the astronauts who died more recently in the Columbia disaster are not forgotten.
