I was alive on this fateful day, but I was only 19 months old. My parents have told me about watching it on TV, and my sisters have told me about seeing it in school. My oldest sister (who was a freshman in HS at the time) was watching it live in her science class. There was shock in the room after the explosion. Just and unreal sight that would sadly be repeated in 2003.

I was in class watching on TV, because of the teacher on board. It was a big deal to all the teachers and us students. We saw it explode and everyone was quiet, then my teacher turned the TV off and just started teaching the next lesson. Like 3rd grade or something. Sad

I was in grade school and I remember being sent home as soon as it happened. When i go home I just remember sitting in front of the TV watching the footage not believing what I kept seeing. It was a very sad day, and back then going to space was still a big deal! Today, none follows the launches and no one really knows what we are even doing up there. It's a disgrace to the astronaunts that died that day!

What a sad and tragic event. I was staying at my Grndmothers house, home "sick" from school (just faking it of course). My aunt lived 5 houses down the street from her and she was there at the time. I remember wakin up that morning and thinking "Ah, I pulled it off again...."Sick" and staying at Gram's house". So I was home alone and got myself a bowl of cereal and settled down in front of the TV hoping to catch a cartoon or two. Much to my dismay, every local channel was carrying the shuttle liftoff. (I was in the 5th grade at the time, so I was not that into news or current events). Just as my attention span was about to give up on the coverage and search for more "entertaining" telelvision, I witnessed the horrible event unfold before my eyes. I quickly picked up the phone and dialed my Grandmother down the street and (I distinctly remember the words I spoke) "Gram, turn on the TV. Something's going really bad"....That was

they where building something to replace the shuttle,but thank bush and his imbecile war for that going to hell,most all funding for it was cut
wasnt born till 2 years after this but remember when the columbia blew up,kept thinking that by now we have the tech to build a effective ship for space about the size of a small frigate but instead thanks to corporate society we use stuff nearing 40 years of age

TheHyra... they all died.. the parachute can onlly be used to slow the shuttle after landing, it's not big enough to float the shuttle down, especially after it erupted in a fireball!

I can't believe they are still using the shuttle nad have not built something more along the lines of an airplane with different engines for earth and space. Seems like I used to hear about the "space plane" every few years.

i was -9 (not born) at the time, and this is quite wierd that they would show it, horribly sick if anyone died, but there was a parachute thing so hopefully that meant nobody was fatally injured...

I was alive and I remember it like it was yesterday. We all gathered around because we were SO excited! I watched it from home with my Mother who worked on the the Space Shuttle (radar portion). She was devistated. It took her a long while for her to stop crying. Depression set in too. I felt so sorry for everyone on board as well as my Mother.

I was in 10th grade.
It was the story of the year.

Mostly because of Christa McAuliff (sp?).
Many, many teachers wanted to be on that launch.

I was almost 14 and grade 9. I remember pretty well but it's worth seeing again. I don't like to forget these things. Reminds me to be happy with the life I have and live every moment like it's my last.

I had the TV on, was cleaning house while youngest not in school yet daughter was playing with her toys. Said "look Tammy, see the rocket ship?", and then that happened, the news reports went wild after that. Very sad for all involved, especially the all the students from the school the teacher was from were watching and just saw her die....
It wasn't a good morning nationwide.

This was two and a half weeks before I was born. But I was interested in space science growing up and my grandma made sure I knew all about it.

At the risk of ridicule and torture, does anyone remember the sick jokes that followed shortly after?

The one I remember is "What does NASA stand for?".... "Need another Seven Astronauts".

We humans find humor in the strangest places.

I heard the news in my high school computer class. Went home at lunch, watched it on TV, didn't go back to school that day.
