HOUSTON – “Today, the Coalition for Space Exploration joins NASA in observing a Day of Remembrance to reflect on the lives lost in the heroic endeavors of our space program. During this day of tribute, we honor those aboard Apollo 1, Challenger, Columbia, as well as other NASA colleagues, who tragically lost their lives in pursuit of an admirable cause. While we mourn the losses, we celebrate the bravery of those whose journey was cut too short. We also acknowledge the courage of those who follow in their footsteps and appreciate their enthusiasm and curiosity, which propel them forward ensuring the losses we have experienced are not in vain.”
