I remember right where I was. On leave between assigments (outbound from Germany, inbound to Myrtle Beach, SC). On leave in my home state of NH, we were preparing to go out when my (then) sister-in-law came running in and said "The Shuttle just blew the $$^&*@# up!! (Proving she wasn't an announcer, I guess!!). I thought, "Naw, she got that wrong......ours NEVER blow up, right?"

To this day the words "Challenger, you are cleared for throttle up" still send chills down my spine.......
