Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread
Speaking of shuttles, I still remember the day the Challenger exploded. January 28th, 1986. I was in 8th grade science class when our teacher wheeled in a TV cart, all excited, saying we were going to watch the shuttle launch. We watched it. About a minute fifteen later, boom. You could have heard a pin drop in the classroom. After about five minutes I remember looking at my teacher -- funny, I forget his name but remember his face -- and he had a tear in his eye and said "That's the damnedest thing I've ever seen."
