Challenger 25 Years Later

January 28th, 2011 01:13 admin Leave a comment Go to comments


25 years ago, I peered inside through the playground window of my school. I was never particularly interested in being outside, and there was a shuttle launch on the library TV! The images of what I saw that day will stick with me forever. I didn’t know what it really was I saw; I just made jokes. It’s still how I deal. But I think I’m a bit wiser today, having maybe learned that the bleeding edge is sometimes literal. The technology we take for granted descends directly from the people willing to do what we never could. Thanks to the crew of Challenger, Columbia and Apollo 1.
