Hard to believe it was 30 years ago today that the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster happened. 

Challenger disaster: Americans share memories on 30th anniversary of space shuttle explosion - Yahoo News

One of those days where if you were born and able to remember where you were you will never forget. 


My Wife and infant Son had just landed in Newark, New Jersey, to visit her Aunt and Uncle and were walking from the gate to baggage claim (yes ssindc there was a time when I checked luggage ) when I saw all these people huddled near a TV in the corner of a bar.  I was absolutely stunned when one of them told me what had occurred.  How I thought, how could this have happened.


Where were you when you heard the news of Challenger exploding?
