Chilling, even after all these years…

February 8, 2010

This video of the Challenger explosion was recently brought to light. The info can be found on the link. It was absolutely chilling to watch, and a large part of that is because of the commentary by the guy doing the video.

I missed the actual explosion. I remember that day like people remember Pearl Harbor or 9/11. I heard about it on the radio after it happened, then saw the video of the explosion that evening. I think in many ways it was more of a history-defining moment than the loss of Columbia because there was no good video of Columbia’s breakup.

Still, it’s heartbreaking to watch, twenty-four years later.
