Dedicated to the Challenger Crew
Twenty-four years ago today (January 28th, 1986, 11:39a.m. EST), the space shuttle Challenger exploded as she attempted to take her seven astronauts on a wondrous voyage above the Earth. These seven were Francis R. Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Judith A. Resnik, Ellison S. Onizuka, Ronald E. McNair, Gregory B. Jarvis, and Sharon Christa McAuliffe.
This image is dedicated to their memory and to all of those whose dedication and service have moved humanity forward.
