Yeah. This is fun to watch. I remember the day of the Challenger tragedy. I was in kindergarden. The teacher had us all sitting around one of those tv's on a stand with wheels. It was a pretty big deal I remember because Christa McAuliffe was on that shuttle - a teacher herself. I was so young though that I didn't really understand the gravity of what it was that I saw.
I too was watching one of those TV's on wheels. I was in second grade. My school had really promoted the launch to all of us kids. In advance of it we were all assigned to make a drawing of the Challenger and we got to vote on whose was the best. We also participated in the Young Astronauts Club and had a countdown to the launch date.
