20 Years after Challenger


20 Years ago today, Space Shuttle Challenger exploded on take-off.

BBC Historical article: On This Day: 7 Dead in Space Shuttle Disaster.

(See this BBC Slideshow of the Challenger Disaster.)

Yet the Gods do not give lightly of the powers they have made.

And with Challenger and seven, once again the price is paid.

Though a nation watched her falling, yet a world could only cry.

As they passed from us to glory, riding fire in the sky

(Extract from "Fire in the Sky", by Jordin Kare.)
