A tragedy that marked time for many of us.

And today marks the 30 year anniversary of the worst tragedy in NASA history.

Yesterday, many of the C&L team were remembering where we were when we heard the news. It's one of those moments, like when Kennedy was shot for an earlier generation. You knew you would always remember where you were.

Where were you when you heard?

Can you help us out?
