Today is the 25th anniversary of the explosion of the Challenger Space Shuttle.
We were living in Texas, having returned from Germany just a few months before. I had never seen a shuttle launch and I was excited and filled anticipation. I had no idea what to expect, so at first I did not realize that anything was wrong. Much like 9-11, I will always remember where I was that day.
How about you? Where were you that day?
Phenix City has a NASA Explorer School and that's where I got this rocket shot.
