Wow, what an amazing post. I just hope we don't pull back from space because of this. We need to keep going, keep exploring. We owe it to Dave Brown and the rest of the crew, not to mention the Challenger crew, Gus Grissom, etc.

that was an extremely sad post he wrote...i couldnt comment on his site so David my heart goes out to u n ur family. God bless

Those are the people I feel and pray for.
