Launched from Earth on July 16, 1969, the three astronauts of Apollo 11 arrived in orbit of the moon on July 19. The following day, Commander Neil Armstrong and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin climbed into their lunar module “Eagle” and achieved humanity’s first landing on another celestial body.

The Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster of January 28, 1986 ~ I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing...do you? I so remember this day. I'll never forget it.
Space History Photo: On January 28, 1986, the Space Shuttle Challenger and its seven-member crew were tragically lost when a ruptured O-ring in the right Solid Rocket Booster caused an explosion soon after launch. This photograph, taken a few seconds after the accident, shows the Space Shuttle Main Engines and Solid Rocket Booster exhaust plumes entwined around a ball of gas from the External Tank.
The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on January 28, 1986, when Space Shuttle Challenger broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members. The spacecraft disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of central Florida at 11:38 am EST (16:38 UTC). Disintegration of the entire vehicle began after an O-ring seal in its right solid rocket booster (SRB) failed at liftoff.....I was home sick from school. I cried.

Making the final crewed landing of the Apollo Program, Apollo 17 touched down on the lunar surface on December 11, 1972, at 2:54 p.m. EST. Along with mission Commander Gene Cernan, Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt guided the Lunar Module Challenger towards the Taurus-Littrow Valley. Schmitt, the only geologist to land on the Moon, and Cernan spent three days on the lunar surface. Learn more about Apollo 17: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/apollo/missions/apollo17.html#.Uqh0wncnYfw. At 7 years old I stayed up until the AM hours just to get a glimpse of this. Public interest had waned considerably.
