In memoriam Challenger and Columbia

I suppose the wreckage had to go on show some time but one hoped it could have waited a few years longer. The memory is still raw for many of us of that generation.

For me, the most poignant loss was that of Christa McAuliffe. As a teacher, the symbol of her presence transcended nationalism. She carried the aspirations of children from all over the world with her and nothing was quite the same after innocent hopes were dashed in the Challenger disaster.
