Default Re: space shuttle

Indeed, it is horrible. And one I take as personally as the previous shuttle tragedy. I saw both Columbia and Challenger on the launch pad in early January 1986. I saw Columbia's launch from 11 miles away just before my flight home. When Challenger was lost 2 weeks later, I was shcoked. Then, 8 years later, I was able to see Columbia launch again as my wife and I stood on Daytona Beach. It just doesn't seem real that the only two shuttles I ever saw have both now been lost. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the crew. God Bless America. God Bless Israel.

Default Israel

You mentioned Israel. It would be very nice to visit the holy land. But right now it is in a bad state of affairs. maybe I am wrong but something like 700 to 800 Israelis and up to maybe 2000 Palestinians have been killed since the year 2000. seeing the holy sights of Christianity is still on my " to do " list, but when is the issue.

Default My post was out of context

my mistake, but my post was out of context. At the time I was unaware that we had an Israeli freind aboard. I am sorry about the screw up!

I assumed that was common knowledge. But I'm just a space flight junkie. Another crewmember was a naturalized American, born in India. Tragic, regardless of birth place. Between this, the Challenger, and Russina losses, a true cross section of humanity have given their lives for space exploration. Brave people, all of them.

Default better angels

To me, the space program represents one the better angels of our nature. It asends far beyond the strife which too often plagues the human condition. In order to better ourselves sometimes we reach beyond our grasp and the space program is a channel in that regard. I pray for the families!!
