I remember quite clearly where I was & what I was doing when I heard about Challenger exploding... It still hurts to think about it.

I remember too. I was walking to my anatomy and physiology class, and stopped to call my boyfriend. He told me, and because he was a joker, I refused to believe him. Then I got to class, and the proffessor announced it, and we had a moment of silence. I remember it very clearly.

Do you remember where you were in 2003 when Columbia disintergrated on Feb 1?

Today Discovery finished her roll out for her final launch Feb 24.

Do you believe manned spaceflight is our destiny?

Yep...and I even fuzzily remember the Apollo 7 tragedy...

Do you believe manned spaceflight is our destiny?

Yes.
