Being young (born in 92) I can still easily remember this day. My father waking me up and saying "The space shuttle just exploded!"
Just looked at a calendar on the web and found that February 1, 2003 was a Saturday.
I remember getting up and putting on my faithful analog tv (still going strong at a friend's house) while making some breakfast.
Those of us on US east coast time were up early enough to hear the reports filtering in.
Needless to say, breakfast got left cold on the kitchen counter.
Sad, sad day.
Feel so sad for the crew, and for their families and loved ones.
RIP Columbia 8 years ago today.
