The disaster of space shuttle Challenger 25 years later--->La catástrofe del Challenger, 25 años después
I did not get any information about it when it happened, since I was serving and on duty and had no tv/newspapers access.
Here an interactive link that shows what happened to the space shuttle "Columbia"---->press the "Comenzar" button

I was sitting on the couch looking through a magazine and the tv was on. Suddenly the tv program's voice seemed to change and it took me a second to realize it was Dan Rather who was now speaking.

A very sad day. I will always remember it.

Just came off a long stint of sitting in the backwoods of Germany on the 1986 ReFORGer exersize. Walked into a Beer tent to drink and watch a little TV. THey broke in to make the announcement... I didn't feel much like drinking... we were soon put on High alert.
