Coalition for Space Exploration Pauses to Reflect and Remember

“Today, the Coalition for Space Exploration joins NASA in observing a Day of Remembrance as the world reflects on the extraordinary heroes who lost their lives in the pursuit of space exploration. Although we mourn the tragic loss of the crew members aboard Apollo 1, Challenger, Columbia, as well as other NASA colleagues, we honor their ultimate sacrifice and continue to be inspired by their bravery. This year as we acknowledge the 25th anniversary of the loss of Challenger and her crew, we celebrate the courage of those whose journey was cut too short. Central to honoring their sacrifice is the continuation of a strong exploration program, inspiring future generations to pursue their dreams and become the innovators of tomorrow. As we look to future space endeavors fueled by passion for this admirable cause, their legacy spurs our resolve ensuring the losses we have experienced are not in vain.”

Glenn Mahone, Chairman
Coalition for Space Exploration
