I would have missed it, if Logan Adams hadn’t posted about it, but today marks the 23rd anniversary of the Challenger disaster, which killed seven people. I don’t remember it; I was too young. (I do remember the Columbia, but not the circumstances I heard it; just the shock.)
I just watched it on YouTube. One minute they’re talking about how the engines are running fine and the crowd is cheering, and the next, shuttle pieces, on fire, were hurtling in several different directions.
