Update 2012...Another Anniversary
Orig print 2007..."On an ordinary Friday evening, Jan. 27, forty years ago, the Apollo launch team was hard at work at Launch Pad 34 on Cape Canaveral. A full dress rehearsal was in progress for the Apollo 1 mission, the first manned mission in the Apollo Program."
"At 6:31 p.m., the unthinkable happened. The vehicle rocked twice as the alarm 'Fire!' rang out from inside the capsule."

The Columbia STS-107 mission lifted off on January 16, 2003, for a 17-day science mission featuring numerous microgravity experiments. Upon reentering the atmosphere on February 1, 2003, the Columbia orbiter suffered a catastrophic failure due to a breach that occurred during launch when falling foam from the External Tank struck the Reinforced Carbon Carbon panels on the underside of the left wing. The orbiter and its seven crewmembers (Rick D. Husband, William C. McCool, David Brown, Laurel Blair Salton Clark, Michael P. Anderson, Ilan Ramon, and Kalpana Chawla) were lost approximately 15 minutes before Columbia was scheduled to touch down at Kennedy Space Center.

From the page: "A rocket booster seal failed 73 seconds after Challenger lifted off on Jan. 28, 1986, causing the vehicle's destruction and killing its STS-51L commander Francis 'Dick' Scobee, pilot Michael Smith, mission specialists Judith Resnik, Ellison Onizuka, Ronald McNair, payload specialist Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe-the first teacher to launch towards space."

Cardinal in flight
Streaking the sky with passion
A fragile vessel
White birch in spring rain
Soon the fog will enfold you
Ah! My lover comes
My lotus blossom
Painted with spring's bright palette
But I have no bowl
