I was thirteen years old in July 1986. Fascinated with space and space travel, watching shuttle launches was something I always did, even staying up late when necessary. On Tuesday 28th January, I got home from school and settled down in front of newsround, the children's news show on BBC One, to watch Challenge rocket into space.
So to Michael J. Smith, Dick Scobee, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Christa McAuliffe, Gregory Jarvis, and Judith Resnik I say good night and God bless.
You are not forgotten.
