Per Ardua ad Astra

I was home on leave that cold January back in 1986...just got up that morning to catch what I thought would be a routine run of the World News...I can still remember the icy chill that went down my back as I witnessed this horrific disaster. My eyes went as big as dinner plates and the first words out of my mouth were "Holy *bleep*"!!!

Challenger is my favorite shuttle. Endevour comes in at second. If only Challenger could have been fitted with that docking adapter just once, I would be happy

I was 7 years old, as the Challenger explodes... it was a shock for me... I had a gigant Poster of the Challenger on my betroom door, because, I always wanted to be an astornaut.

May their souls rest in a better place...

I wasn't even alive so I can't say I remember that day but it was a shame.
Rest In Peace Challenger and her crew.

Sorry, Admin, if this isn't allowed.

Last year, we here at Max-Q Entertainment produced an absolutely stunning tribute to not only STS-51L, but also Apollo 1 and STS-107.  As we are so close to these tragic anniversaries, we would like to present our tribute to you here at Space Shuttle Mission.

New Days Will Rise - Tribute to Apollo 1, STS-51L, and STS-107

We will never forget those who have passed while making our country better.

I watched that on NSF. It was a great tribute. I didn't want to post it without permission from Max-Q so thanks Steven for doing it correctly. Smiley

It is a great thing to have here. Grin

Nice video.  I was 6 years old when Challenger took off for the last time.  I remember watching it in school.  What a shame.

Brings me in tears,a nd please have some tissues you'll need them god speed challenger!

Slide show of the Jan 28, 1986 Space Shuttle disaster with musical selections by the group Mister Mister - "Kyrie (Eleison)" & "Broken Wings".

These two Mister Mister songs have always been linked in my mind to this tragic event in our nations history. "Kyrie Eleison" from the catholic mass "Lord have mercy" and has a line asking all of us...

will we follow? Many have and will continue to follow the example that these brave individuals at NASA have set for all of us.

No where is the human spirit of discovery creativity, and exploration more alive than in our space program.
Thanks for watching.

Unfortunately, I was a witness to this disaster -- real-time with my MK-1 Eyeball... I was on the ramp (at Patrick AFB) watching it when it took off and then I stood there for 45 mins watching the pieces of debris falling down to the Atlantic.... never, never forget that day...

As a guitarist (in a band at that time), I took my electric out on to the balcony and cranked-up 130 Watts RMS and played a Jimmy Hendrix styled version of the Star Spangled Banner in their honor...

ehh I would have cried if I had even seen it live on T.V. I did see STS-107 on T.V. I will never forget it but I was only 7 so it is vague and I didn't understand it but it was when my space addiction was starting up so I made sure to see it but sadly won't forget it. Sad
