This Day in History

From The History Channel site:

CHALLENGER EXPLODES:
January 28, 1986
"At 11:38 a.m. EST, on January 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger lifts off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, ....

Seventy-three seconds later, hundreds on the ground, including Christa's family, stared in disbelief as the shuttle exploded in a forking plume of smoke and fire. Millions more watched the wrenching tragedy unfold on live television. There were no survivors"

Many people remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news of the Kennedy assassination, Elvis's death and John Lennon's assassination. Many more, including me, will remember the first shuttle tragedy the same way.
