Oops. COLUMBIA's made many people have flashbacks to CHALLENGER... I even heard a clip online of a Texas woman making an emergency call, saying she usually got to see shuttles re-entering, and she thought that CHALLENGER had just blown up...
I really want to see this vid, but am going to have to download a Mac-compatible edition of Windows Media Player, I guess, because it doesn't appear to be in a format I can use otherwise. (I have Real Player, but apparently not upgraded enough. I don't think I can use the latest editions of that software on System 8.6.)
