25 Years Later, remembering the Space Shuttle Challenger

It’s rare that you get to see history being made on live TV, and when it does, you take that with you forever.  For the Baby Boomer generation, they can tell you where they were and what they were doing when they heard John F. Kennedy had been shot, and also about watching man’s first steps on the moon.  For the people my age, the first was the Space Shuttle Challenger:

 

On January 28, 1986, I was 9 years old, and me and my other 4th grade classmates were gathered around a TV on a rolling cart in Mrs. Davidson’s classroom.  This space shuttle launch was special for many reasons, so this was the first time that I can remember having a TV in a classroom for something other than a boring movie.  I don’t know that 9 and 10 year old kids could quite grasp the enormity of the science, technology, and economics involved in space flight, we’d grown up on Star Wars, where interstellar travel was a part of everyday life.  However, we did understand life and death.  When the Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff, we were shocked.  I don’t remember if I cried or not, but Mrs. Davidson couldn’t hold back and in turn many kids in my class began to cry as well.  We watched the coverage for a few more hours, until finally the faculty got us back into our routine so we could kind of have a normal school day.  If you are too young to remember the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion, please google it today and learn something.  If you are old enough to remember, then you probably know exactly where you were when it exploded.  Either way, take some time today to reflect on the Space Shuttle Challenger or learn more about it.

Office Fans: Steve Carell is out, is Will Ferrell in?

Will Ferrell is coming to the Office!

As reported by Entertainment Weekly and other outlets, Will Ferrell will join the cast of “The Office” for four episodes later this season, at least one of which will air after the show’s resident clueless ring leader, Steve Carell, departs. (Michael Scott will say his farewell four episodes prior to the season finale.)

Will Texas A&M bolt for the SEC?

I found this article online, that outlines what could happen now that Texas has it’s own network.  This guy projects that the Aggies will bolt for the SEC.  I’m not sure that would be the best thing for our football program, but Clay Travis of fanhouse.com believes that it’s inevitable.  If you’re an Aggie Football fan, check out the article and let me know what you think.
