A Tough Time Of Year

Fifty-three years ago tonight, these three men lost their lives in an inferno atop a Saturn rocket.

Tomorrow’s the 34th anniversary of our losing Challenger.

Seventeen years ago Saturday, February 1st, we lost Columbia.

Even if I don’t initially remember, there’s something buried deep in my brain that remembers and knows. Then I see some comment and it’s, “Oh. Yeah. That.”

And yet…

We’ve still got folks living on ISS every day for over twenty years. We’ve got folks, men and women, who have lived in space for almost a year at a time so that we can see what happens to the body on a trip to Mars. We’re still out there doing EVAs and keeping ISS running.

We remember.

But we keep pressing on.
