Space Remembrance Day at the National Space Society
There are some events in which every American who was alive and more than a few years old knows where they were when they heard about it. Two involve the space program. One was when men finally landed on the moon. The other was a tragic event, when seven astronauts were killed when the space shuttle Challenger exploded shortly after takeoff. Just as space fans celebrate the triumphs of exploration, they also take a little time to remember those who were lost. On Monday, the National Space Society had their "Space Remembrance Day" discussion.
