Currently Booming: The 31st Anniversary of the Challenger Disaster

This morning marks the 31st anniversary of NASA's catastrophic Challenger space shuttle disaster. I think that this is one of those moments in American history where you remember exactly where you were when you heard the news. I, like many 80's kids was at school. Back then whenever there was a shuttle launch classes stopped and every classroom television was turned to watch our space program make history. On this particular morning I was in art class and there was just silence. CNN's reporting in the clip below really captures those first moments. The silence is kind of deafening.
