Remembering Fallen Pioneers

NASA, the nation and the world are observing this  week the anniversaries of human losses in spaceflight: Apollo 1 (forty  nine years ago today, January 27), Challenger (thirty years  ago tomorrow, January 28), and Columbia (thirteen years ago this coming Monday,  February 1).

May they be always remembered, along with the four Russians, the Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo pilot and all those who have or will give their lives in the future as humans expand outward to explore, develop and settle new places in the cosmos.
