I can still remember it too, when I was a kid I used to love watching all the space shuttle launches as they happened. I would still like to travel to Florida one day and hopefully see a launch, though I doubt it will happen with few if any flights in the future.

RIP Challenger and her crew... You will always be remembered.

Although I was born in August of 1986, scientifically speaking, I am as old as the Challenger disaster itself. It remains one of the defining moments of our lifetimes and it serves as a humbling experience to our limitations and our evils.

At the same time, it is also a reminder that someday, thanks to people like Francis Scobee, Michael Smith, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Christa McAuliffe, Greg Jarvis, and Judy Resnik, we will be able to discover the great things out there and make our lives better for all.

Godspeed to the crew of the Challenger and to the forgotten three of Apollo 1, who died yesterday.

Amen. As long as there are people willing to risk it all to advance our knowledge, and our boundries, I think the human race will be OK.

to all space fans. i highly recommend going to your local imax theater and viewing "magnificent desolation" its visually orgasmic . it honors those we lost 20 years ago today and all other americans who died living the dream.

The Challenger exploded at around 11:38 this morning. I counted out 73 seconds in my head as my own way of remembering the disaster.

One thing's for sure. They all died, but they never stopped living.

I was on a middle school field trip to see a play that morning so missed seeing the launch (I grew up in Orlando, so would usually see the launch on TV then go out to see it in the sky after a few minutes when it came visible from that distance). I think they just sent us all to the media center to watch the television reports when we got back to the school. It was quite weird, everyone was closely watching this launch since a teacher was aboard.

Sad indeed. Ya I remember it still like yesterday. That was the very first space shuttle launch i saw as a kid (7 at the time). Rest in Peace to all the heros of the yesteryear who paved the way for where and what we are today.
