In every age those who go to the unknown reaches face dangers and risk their lives for knowledge. Let us pause for a moment and keep these seven in our thoughts ...

... may everyone involved with the space program, astronauts, families, friends, technicians, scientists and administrators have strength and wisdom to continue pushing back the frontiers of knowledge.

I live 10 minutes away from NASA... the families of the astronauts and their friends were deeply saddened. Even the people that didn't know them, like me... the whole community felt the loss. It's heartbreaking still, but the courage that their families have shown is amazing, their continued support for NASA... amazing.

yes. there was a radio program about the tem training exercises they did - sort of desert survival stuff - they even made a video of there time on the course. Quite moving!

I think my main point was that we have to go on despite the failures in life, othrwise we never will discover the unexplored.

Peace
