Ronald McNair died 30 years ago today

..on his way back into space, aboard Space Shuttle Challenger. I remember it well. I was a kid staying home sick and heard the report as it came through, Challenger exploded. Judy Resnik had visited our elementary school once, a couple of years before. She It sunk in. But I did not know anything about Ron McNair at the time. He was one of seven brave people that died going to space.

That's a shame, because he was really a man worth knowing.


He was a Baha'i, a scientist, an astronaut, a fifth degree black belt in karate, a saxophone player, and once upon a time a child who would not be refused access to a library due to his ethnicity.
