The shop where I was working at the time had a TV in the customer waiting area, it was still a big event at the time.
When mission control said "throttle up" it looked like it just exploded, I knew something very wrong had happened.

I recall it well. In fact I can see it in my mind's eye now.

I also there were jokes about it by lunch time. I did not approve.

But there you go.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

It's never "too soon" for a joke......


Well -- maybe at the scene of an accident.......
....

But, on the way home -- fair game....

I was about ten months old, so I probably saw it on TV, but I don't remember.

I watched it live on tv and later people were saying I couldn't have seen it live because only CNN broadcast it live and I didn't have CNN at the time. But a local Los Angeles station was airing the lift off live and that's what I was watching. I found it on youtube recently too. So there!

(People telling me I didn't see it live... geesh!....grumble... grumble.... grumble....)

While I was looking for that video I came across the Columbia disaster in 2003 and the Mission control conversation with Columbia. As soon as the shuttle commander reported several tiles had fallen off you can see the concern on the Houston controllers faces. I think they knew it was all over for the crew. That poor Mission Control Flight Director. It wasn't his fault that the tiles came off.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
