Tribute to the Challenger

February 1st, 2008 by xformed

I won’t repeat Steeljaw Scribe’s well written tribute, but I will add something I took away from this incident:

“High Calling: The Courageous Life and Faith of Space Shuttle Columbia Commander Rick Husband” by Evelyn Husband is a remarkable read. Evelyn wrote it less than a year after the accident that claimed the crew’s lives, but told a story of a man who had set his sight on being an astronaut in high school and then figured out how to get there.

But there’s more. It’s a story of a man who struggled to do the right thing always, and to be a great husband and father. His wife used his personal journals, not written for any purpose than to help Rick find his own way though his life’s journey, to let us see who he really was.

And more beyond that as well. Curious as to what it takes to be an astronaut? Wonder how someone gets where they want to? Think you’re the only one who has questions about what’s going on to you? Read about Rick, you’ll find answers that will know some things, too.
