As most of you know my latest script deals with the space Shuttle Challenger so (a few weeks ago) I went and checked out the Shuttle in person as it made it's way to the museum. It was an awesome sight! The pics don't do it justice. While there I was happy to see everyone excited and taking photos. I was also reminded about the people who gave their lives on board the Challenger and Columbia. One of whom, Greg Jarvis, worked for the same company I started working for right out of engineering school, Hughes Aircraft. RIP.
I was a small kid when the Challenger blew up and I still remember it to this day. It is one of my earliest memories. I was watching the broadcast in my kindergarten class and after it blew up I remember my teacher crying and the rest of us trying to figure out why. Her crying made us all cry as well. Sad day.
