    Why someone would come hard into a sky made of boiling water is beyond me.

    I remember seeing this on TV as it happened. Sad day.

    storminator

    i saw it on tv, too.

    fracked again

    Probably not _as_ it happened. It was one of the first times a daytime launch wasn’t televised.

    Um, this was televised live. lern2wikipedia: “Children were even more likely than adults to have seen the accident live, since many children—forty-eight percent of nine to thirteen-year-olds, according to a New York Times poll—watched the launch at school.”

    Sheesh. My apologies. I was wrong.

    fracked again

    Check that. No apologies. Lern2wikipedia yourself, fuckers!

    “While the presence of New Hampshire schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe on the Challenger crew had provoked some media interest, there was little live broadcast coverage of the launch. The only public live national coverage was provided by CNN. Due to McAuliffe’s presence on the mission, NASA arranged for many U.S. public schools to view the launch live on NASA TV.[40]”

    It was barely televised. My elementary school didn’t have CNN, and we didn’t have NASA TV.

    Fuck the NYTimes poll, they probably only looked at NYC school kids

    Ummm, that means it was televised, which is the opposite of what you said. No one was claiming that you saw it live, only themselves.

    fracked again

    Stop getting your logic in the way of my victory rant!

    HoChunk

    Ugh…remember that day very well. I’ll find no lulz here.

    Stolid

    I saw it in person. And it WAS televised.

    More interesting facts about the crew:

    we know the crew wasn’t on MCS. They’re all over on bits and pieces.

    What were the last words of Christa McAuliffe to her husband?
    You feed the dog, I’ll take care of the fish.

    Hahahahah…no, huh?
