I couldn’t help but feel a bit sentimental yet awestruck as the shuttle cleared the tower at Cape Canaviral for the final time today.
I, like millions, watched the Challenger disaster unfold live on TV in our classrooms (1986 was my senior year in high school). Had Krista McCauliffe lived, I wonder what she would be thinking today.

So lets savor “this magic day when super-science mingles with the bright stuff of dreams.”
