A Week of Fallen Heros

This past week, we honor those who died making space exploration a reality:

Launch Pad 34 on Jan. 27, 1967, Apollo 1 astronauts Virgil ``Gus'' Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee were killed as a fire engulfed the capsule of Apollo 1. It was two years later that we landed two men on the Moon.

On Jan. 28, 1986, The Crew of STS-51L boarded the Space Shuttle Challenger. 73 seconds into the flight, the shuttle was destroyed along with Michael J. Smith, Dick Scobee, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Christa McAuliffe, Gregory Jarvis, and Judith Resnik.
