The Challenger Disaster - 25 years later

Sometimes I find it amazing what events have occurred in my life time. One such event was the Challenger space shuttle disaster. I was in grade six at school at Ponoka Elementary  when  I learned about the shuttle explosion. I remember feeling stunned and shocked. Being a 12 year old boy I was fascinated by the space program and for some reason I thought that NASA was infallible, that there was no way a shuttle could simply blow up. But it did. The 7 crew members died that day on January 28th, 1986.

The Big Picture website as some pictures that really hit home for me.
