Remembering Challenger

As I sit here watching the images on the ISS-Above in my own office, I'm deeply grateful to those who have gone before on whose shoulders we all stand to tackle the next frontier. 

Today we’re really present to the courage it takes to be in the space exploration as we mourn Challenger. And yes, what a thing to give one’s life to. That inspires us in our work with young people and teachers.

Thank you Teacher-in-Space payload specialist Sharon Christa McAuliffe; payload specialist Gregory Jarvis; and astronauts Judith A. Resnik, mission specialist; Francis R. (Dick) Scobee, mission commander; Ronald E. McNair, mission specialist; Mike J. Smith, pilot; and Ellison S. Onizuka, mission specialist.
