Each year we hold a Day of Remembrance. Today, Jan. 25, we pay will tribute to the crews of Apollo 1 and space shuttles Challenger and Columbia, as well as other NASA colleagues who lost their lives while furthering the cause of exploration and discovery.

John Watts Young (September 24, 1930 – January 5, 2018)
I wasn’t around for the Apollo missions, but fondly remember John Young on the first shuttle flight. This one hurts. RIP John Young.
While not promoting politics on this blog, I do find myself really wanting to experience another Apollo moment, when the world, if only for a short time, came together in celebration of achievement and accomplishment.
