I'm home unexpectedly today - I'm thankful to be able to watch it live, and alone. Kalpana bears an eerie resemblance to one of my nieces.

Glad you're here. I cannot believe that the House and the Senate are holding live hearings right now. Aren't they going to stop?

Thank you, Howlin. I'm cubicle-bound, but I'll try to follow along.

And Thanks to all the Freepers who posted pictures of the Columbia astronauts and Mission STS-107.

I have been following MSNBC for the most part as they seem, to me ay least, to be covering the ongoing investigation the best.

That being said, I'm turning to FOX News for the Memorial.

CNN (sorry to admit) is showing a half-screen of the scene now...Fox and MSNBC were not, last time I checked. I hate CNN but I want the best coverage for this.

The daughter of Michael J Smith from Challanger is talking live on FOX right now. She is crying and breaking up but her pride is incredible. She was 8 when her father died and there were a total of 12 children who lost their parent from Challanger in 86.

I can't believe I'm gonna say this - but I'm glad I'm at the office today. This is such an emotional time and when I watched and listened to the President's comments Saturday, I couldn't stop the tears. I'm sure today's comments will be even more heart wrenching.

Thanks for the ping and the thread, Howlin.

I'm here, too, watching it on Fox - I'm already crying - listening to one of the daughters of one of the Challenger astronauts.

I get so choked up with these type of events---

Telling the others - to keep on doing what you did as families. They are not really gone - they are in our hearts.

Re: the future of space travel - human kind cannot understand unless the feel and touch something. A machine can't do it (I guess robots) The beauty of space can't be seen from pictures. The dream should live on. You keep going. Oh, she's wonderful

Thank you. I'm going to run a quick errand on my lunch hour and I suspect/hope Rush will play parts of the memorial. Im afraid I'll be crying along with you.

They're all shameless publicity hounds....Sen Nelson is really an ass...he's been all OVER the nets..the guy hasn't slept in 3 days, I think....all because he once rode the shuttle...guess this means that if Graham drops out of the Dem presidential race, he'll run himself....also, look for the dems to resurrect JOhn Glenn in Ohio to run again for the sdenate in 2004..

I agree - but they really are the best for this type of thing. I guess experience counts for something.

C-Span is now showing the memorial without commentary for those that prefer it that way.

She is the daughter of Astronaut Michael Smith. She was very inspiring. You can hear the band playing hymns in the background. I have heard "I Need Thee Every Hour" and "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God."

Air Force Band from Lackland playing now.
