Anyone who sits on top of the largest hydrogen-oxygen fueled system in the world, knowing they’re going to light the bottom, and doesn’t get a little worried, does not fully understand the situation.
— John Young, after being asked if he was nervous about making the first Space Shuttle flight in 1981.
Sadly prophetic. The image is of a piece of the fuselage of the Space Shuttle Challenger, that broke broke apart on January 28, 1986, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members. I have heard it said that people never forget where they were when they heard JFK had been assasinated. Too young to remember that, I clearly recall listening to the live commentary of this :(
