25 Year Anniversary

Today is the 25-year anniversary of the Challenger disaster. I was a senior in high school.

The event provided a strange crossroads for me because I was about to embark on a college career in aerospace engineering... The disaster seemed to be a gauntlet thrown down, a direct, "Are you doing the right thing?" question from the Fates.

Ronald Reagan's address that day included, "The future doesn't belong to the fainthearted..."
