In memoriam

Courtesy of cmpriest, whose LJ I found through dances_withcats

Today, in 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded, killing all seven astronauts on board.

I remember I was a junior in high school in Buffalo, NY, and I think I only found out after I got home (no TVs in the classrooms in my high school in those days).

Fifth Grade. Arthur Circle Elementary School. in Shreveport, LA.
They announced it over the PA, and brought everyone into the auditorium to see it.

Sixth grade, Cloverbank Elementary School in Hamburg, NY. We were on a field trip to the town hall for some workshop on drugs or whatnot. They told us on the bus, I think it was on the way back. At the time, I was really into astronomy and I felt really bad about it.
