It's that time of year again, though for reasons beyond my control I was very late getting online today, so I'll be posting both the 27 Jan and 28 Jan threads now - it's (barely) still the 27th where I am, but already the 28th for most of you.

I hate about a week this time of year. All of NASA's disasters in a few days. I remember watching the special reports on TV the night this happened.

I was in diapers.  But I do have the complete From the Earth to the Moon - maybe I'll watch that segment tonight in memorial.

Thank you for these, Sunflower.

That's part of why I post these every year - it helps me to deal with that.  I could deal with it by just not remembering, but that... offends my sense of honor, for lack of a better way to express it.

Time is the only thing that helps me deal with them, especially the Apollo 1 fire as it was obviously preventable.
