The loss of the Challenger

Seeing the Challenger explode when I was 7 years old immediately communicated to me how hard getting to space really is. Why would people expose themselves to such risk to go there? It must be worth it, I thought, it must be awesome. And turns out it's way more than that. It's where we all came from, and where we belong.
