Remembering the Challenger Crew

Remembering the Challenger Crew | NASA.

UPDATE: 01/31/2014 NASA Honored the losses of all three of their disasters…

Sharon Christa McAuliffe received a preview of microgravity during a special flight aboard NASA’s KC-135 “zero gravity” aircraft. A special parabolic pattern flown by the aircraft provides shore periods of weightlessness. These flights are often nicknamed the “vomit comet” because of the nausea that is often induced. McAuliffe represented the Teacher in Space Project aboard the STS 51-L/Challenger when it exploded during take-off on January 28, 1986 and claimed the lives of the crewmembers.

I cannot believe this slipped past me…I missed putting it up at the start of January 28. The Challenger was built here where I live, practically across the street from where I sit typing this. I can clearly remember the pride of the people here as we walked this ship down one of our city streets as it was being rolled from its birthplace, in the hangars at the Palmdale Grumman plant to the Edwards A.F.B.

I’ll never forget the day of this tragic accident. I was getting into the car to go over to the printer’s to pick up my wedding invitations. I can still see the images play in my mind of the incredible after-launch explosion. I remember too, Christa McAuliffe’s classroom of students was also watching — I wondered how hard that had to be, explaining to those little kids that their teacher just died, right before their eyes, on live television.

In a couple more days, we have another Shuttle disaster to remember, the Columbia. It too was born right here. God Bless America and those souls who have given all in the name of understanding the space frontier.

Eastern Lightning

Eastern Lightning, the Church of Almighty God was created because of the appearance and work of Almighty God, the second coming of the Lord Jesus, Christ of the last days. It is made up of all those who accept Almighty God’s work in the last days and are conquered and saved by His words. It was entirely founded by Almighty God personally and is led by Him as the Shepherd. It was definitely not created by a person. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life. God’s sheep hear God’s voice. As long as you read the words of Almighty God, you will see God has appeared.
