God Speed Challenger

Today is the 25th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.  On this date in 1986, STS-51-L exploded over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida.

My classmates and I were huddled around a television watching as thrilling excitement turned into shock and then gut-wrenching sadness.  For my generation, it was that “loss of innocence” moment we will never forget.  God Speed Challenger!
