Challenger astronauts memorialized on the Moon

“Friday was the 25th anniversary of the loss of the Shuttle Orbiter Challenger, which I already wrote about as part of a post about Apollo 1 and Columbia. But I wanted to add that after that event in 1986, seven craters on the Moon were named after the astronauts:”

    So you die heroically in a horrible explosion and they name a crater on a dead rock after you?

    Seriously. How about mountains instead? Craters for people that died in a transportation accident… just wrong.

    I agree… Unless they MADE the craters. Then it would be kinda awesome.

    OK, I’m officially changing my last wishes from ‘Viking Funeral’ to ‘Some sort of machine that can propel my corpse into the earth so fast that it makes a hole.’

    So what that be, MCS? Some sort of canon? Drop me out of a plane?

    Discuss.
