25 years ago today* I was sitting in my high school chemistry class when the principal came on the PA system to announce that the Space Shuttle Challenger had just exploded during launch. The Challenger had been a big deal on the lead-up because they were sending a civilian up--Christa McAuliffe, a school teacher.
My chemistry teacher looked dazed, and he said, "I'll be go to hell."
*How can I seriously be old enough to be saying "Twenty-five years ago..."?
