Snapshot day of remembrance 2015_001

We’ll begin with a discussion of NASA’s Astronaut Remembrance Day and the tragedies that brought it about (Apollo 1, Challenger, Columbia). Then we’ll broaden our perspective to include others who have lost their lives to our dreams of space, such as ground crew, test pilots, commercial ventures and such. The recent Virgin Galactic loss of life, and what that means for commercial space will be discussed, and how all of the risks vs. rewards affect human spaceflight going forward.
