Challenger

| | Comments (2)

Thirty years ago this morning we woke up to the news of the Challenger disaster.

I was just starting year 7.  My parents heard it on the radio in bed, and told us about it.

I remember being quite stunned at the time.

I also remember that jokes about it came out *very* quickly in those pre-internet days.  (eg - what does NASA stand for? need another seven astronauts)

Sad times..
