To: a fool in paradise

I watched the Challenger explode from the parking lot of my high school in Titusville, FL. Then a lifetime later, I watched Columbia explode over DFW through the sunroof of my car.

I went to see 2 shuttle landings at Edwards AFB, the first Columbia and the first Challenger.

Space Shuttle Columbia is in a decent for the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and will pass over the San Francisco Area around 6:00 AM Pacific Time. Route will take the Shuttle over Las Vegas, Flagstaff, etc. NASA has still not decided which runway will be used. Landing will be at 9:16 AM Eastern.
