We weren’t too far into that morning’s Calculus lesson in Mr. Robinson’s class at Olympia High School when the PA interrupted to report that the Challenger had exploded shortly after launch.  I can remember looking up at the industrial clock next to the speaker in that classroom in Building 3;  I was incredulous.  Our teacher being visibly shaken—as were we all.  That was 25 years ago tomorrow.  RIP Challenger crew.
