Ditto. I remember them wheeling a TV into class to watch the take off and then the tragedy.

I was 16 years old. It was a terrible day in history. It seemed at the time to almost not be real, similar to the Twin Towers. I still remember people making awful, tasteless jokes about the dead astronauts, especially Christa McAuliffe. And didn't some sick bastard find her hand and keep it? I swear I'm not making that up..it happened sometime, if not this incident.

This is strange. Everyone here is talking about being in school watching it, but I was home with a friend of mine watching it happen. I went to private school, so maybe some weird catholic holiday was going on, but my friend went to public school. hmmm...


Anyway....a sad day indeed.

I too was in high school when it happened in Daytona Beach. I know people who were outside watching it and saw it explode in the sky. Sad day indeed. :,-(

Damn, I remember the day that happened. I was in the 3rd grade watching it on television if I remember correctly. Just terrible that it happened.

I'm going to sound like a callous ass hole for saying this, but the Challenger explosion is one of the most overrated disasters in US history.

That being said, I definitely remember where I was when it happened, and it was extremely sad. It's odd comparing the mood of the nation immediately after that with the mood immediately after the most reason shuttle explosion...far, far different.

callous? maybe a little. and whether or not people agree with you, you probably won't have to slow down to let people jump on the bandwagon.

As for me, I was... oh, that's right... not alive. Sad nonetheless... and again with the Discovery (if i recall correctly) when that happened.
