    Yes...absolutely incredible. They are officially saying yet, but if you watch that video of the re-entry, you and see the breakup. Very, very sad...

    Yes it is so very sad, 7 people, it would take a miracle for anyone of them to survive

    Some of the *Challenger* crew survived the initial explosion.. it is possible to exit the shuttle via the escape hatch but the chances of survival are pretty slim.

    Awful news.

    Very Sad!

    A miracle would be nice right about now. I was watching the astronauts talk yesterday and the one women on board did nothing but smile the whole time. She looked so happy. How sad!

    They are now reporting a debris field in texas, with several parts ending up in the Dallas Ft Worth area...I don't know if the networks are showing them yet but there are a few pictures of amateur video where you can clearly see it happen....

    You're absolutely right Popdawg. I had just spoken to a group of high-school seniors concerning their future and business. I used Christy McCauluff (sp) as an example of a fine teacher who was at that moment about to fly into space.

    Went across the hotel lobby and into the bar to have a drink and watched the whole thing happen live.

    Broke my heart. Broken again this morning. God bless their families.

    I was at Patrick Air Force Base at that time and it broke my heart. I still remember it like it was today. Could not believe it. Can't imagine it's happening again.
    God bless the crew and their families

    The Challenger accident was on 28th January 1986, so the anniversay of that was only a few days ago.

    Shuttle missions have become so common - over 100 now - that we forget the enormous risks and the bravery of those people involved.

    This crew were involved in a number of scientific experiements, many to do with medicine - see the Shuttle Mission homepage at NASA.

    Every time this comes up people argue that manned space missions are dangerous and should be canned, but the US should be proud of the fact that it's the only nation now carrying out regular manned missions and research in space.

    Personally I have always believed that mankind's future lies in the stars. These are the pioneers of that dangerous reaching-out from planet Earth - brave men and women all.

    Very Terrible, also Israels first ever astronaut onboard too, so it's not just the US that'll be wondering what went wrong.

    BBC news site says it broke up while going 12,500 mph, I can't even imagine how fast that must be

    A very terrible day indeed. I had the same sinking situation in the pit of my stomach as I did when the Challenger diaster happened. It strikes to my heart for deeper than just the human tradgey, which is enomerous in and of itself. The space program is such of an ingrained part of our national culture and pride. Going back to the "Camelot" days of the 60's. A symbol of hope, reaching those things which should be beyond your reach, dreams realized, and in the last few decades of the program, overcoming rising above international differences. That symbol has been struck with a devastating blow again today.

    Aside from the Isreali astronaut, one of the female astronauts was from India and immigrated to the US.

    That's terribly sad.
    I haven't had a TV for a year now, and at first I felt isolated because I was less up-to-date with world events. Then I thought, actually, the news is kind of depressing. So I prefer to be somewhat removed from it.
    I'm glad I didn't see the pictures.
    My heart goes out to the families and friends.

    I only just found out about this
    I remember challenger well, I was driving to work back in England when it happened and the traffic came to a standstill, we could not believe it had happened.

    A very sad day for America and space travel.

    Travel safe
