Twenty-five years ago today the space shuttle Challenger exploded, claiming the lives of its seven member crew: Francis R. (Dick) Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Judith A. Resnik, Ronald E. McNair, Ellison S. Onizuka, Gregory B. Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe.

On the drive in to work this morning, I was listening to NPR. As they do every Friday, they played a recording from their Storycorps project. This particular recording was about astronaut Ron McNair, made by his brother Carl. I found it deeply inspiring and I suspect many of you will as well. I encourage you to take a moment out of your day to click the link and give it a listen.
