You are also invited to view a video memorializing the crew members, their goals and their inspiration. The video will run continuously throughout the day on JSC Cable channel 2.
At 2 p.m., Astronauts Ellen Ochoa, Steve Lindsey and I will accompany family members to the Memorial Grove where we will lay wreaths in their honor. The Apollo 1, Challenger and Columbia families will always be a part of the NASA family and we will also honor their sacrifice. Throughout the day, please feel free to visit the Memorial Grove to celebrate the lives of all of these extraordinary individuals.
Please take a moment on Monday to pause and think about these great explorers who died doing what they loved in the service of their country.
