Space shuttle Challenger explosion, 1986 I remember so vividly where I was when I heard the news....I had just dropped off a movie at the video store, got in the car where my mom was waiting, turned on the radio, and there it was...mom and I sat there for a few minutes, stunned.

You know what is taking place here and remember watching it happen live on tv. Sad, sad day
STS-135 Space Shuttle Atlantis Up-Close I've worked on that gang plank, the final path of steel to the shuttle's Astronauts entry. Sandblasting and spraying zinc. Most memorable moments and I feel very blessed for the opportunity to do so. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to experience great things kids. Hard work and determination will never let you down.
