Where Were You?

The space shuttle Challenger explodes shortly after lifting off from Kennedy Space Center in this Jan. 28, 1986 file photo. All seven crew members (Bottom, from left to right: Ellison Onizuka, Mike Smith, Christa McAuliffe, Dick Scobee, Greg Jarvis, Ron McNair and Judy Resnick.) died in the explosion, which was blamed on faulty O-rings in the shuttle’s booster rockets. The disaster shattered NASA’s image and the belief that flying on a spacecraft could become as routine as airplane flight. (AP photo/Bruce Weaver)

Question: We’re not going to be getting together tomorrow, on the 20th anniversary of the disaster. So, I’ll ask this now: What were you doing when the Challenger exploded?
