The tragedy I will remember the most is the Apollo fire. The clips of the fire will always haunt me. I did a job once destroying defective solid rocket fuel rods. People who knew what I was doing thought I was suicidal, which wasn't true. Someone had to do it before they killed innocent people. I knew if I made a mistake, I wouldn't feel a thing. I believe that was the case with the shuttles and they will forever rest in peace.
