In honor of Challenger

It was on this day in 1986 the space shuttle exploded 73 seconds after launching.

Here is CNN coverage from 11:00-12:00 on that day. Live coverage of the shuttle begins at approximately the 34 minute mark. However I found the whole hour fascinating to watch.

This, naturally, leads into my all time favorite Reagan moment;
