January 28, 1986

Do you remember where you were 24 years ago today?

I was sitting in my 3rd grade classroom. Watching this live on TV.

Christa McAuliffe was supposed to be the first teacher in space and kick off a whole year of space-related elementary school education programs. We were so excited. And then so heartbroken. I still cry when I think about that day.

Please remember Mrs. McAuliffe and the rest of the brave crew of the space shuttle Challenger today. NASA has capsule bios of the crew here and the NASA crew photo looks best here on Wikipedia.
