Today is the 20th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger tragedy. I will never forget where I was and what I was doing when the news came on. <br /><br />On this day, NASA honors them, and all fallen astronauts, and so should we. We should remember the high ideals that they flew for, and died for, and never allow their memories to be tarnished by losing the dream of spaceflight.<br /><br />There is a place and a forum for debating the usefulness of the space shuttle, the ISS, and our future in space. If there is one thing, though, that the crews of Apollo 1, Challenger, and Columbia stood for, that was manned space exploration. I beleive that they would want us to continue the dream, to continue to push back the frontiers of space, because they knew and understood how important that is to the future of humanity. <br /><br />So, we honor them, and their memories by continuing to fly, striving to fly safer, and never giving up on the dream that they embraced and stood for, and died for.<br /><br />May God bless them, and those who survive them and still mourn them.
