*Welcome FREE REPUBLIC readers.
This day in 1986, the day the Challenger exploded, was one of this Nation's worst days on record. Andrea Shea-King was working the launch as a public affairs announcer. She introduced the crew as they headed for the launch pad. From Andrea's post:
"As they approached the tv cameras, I keyed the mic. Here's my voice describing the astronauts' walkout."
Watch the vid and hear as Andrea announces the flight crew. Read Andrea's account of the Challenger accident, and remember the crew and their families in your prayers.
