Sad news for the U.S. .......
Just found out the space shuttle belw up upon it's return, the last one happened when I was in eighth grade. Never thought I'd see it happen again. God rest their souls [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

I've been watching all morning too. This is really sad. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I still remember watching the Challenger back in '86 and this brings up lots of sad memories.

It's sad, and really makes me remember a few far off dusty memories from when I was in 1st grade.

The thing is we can't let the nay-sayers let this shut down the Shuttle Program. We've got 2 astronauts and a cosmonaut up there in the space station, and we need to get them back down, and keep working on that station. If we let them use the escape pod, we're basically admitting defeat in my eyes. I'm sure when we're cruising around in something like Star Wars or Star Trek, there will be accidents then too. Brave people take big risks, they knew it, and all we can do is honor them by pushing on in their memory.

Also on board was Ilan Ramon, a colonel in the Israeli air force who was the first citizen of his country to fly in space.
