Artist's Description

A tribute to the brave men and women of the “Challenger and Columbia” shuttles who lost there lives

Hours after the space shuttle disintegrated over Texas, news of the tragedy reached millions of people via the World Wide Web, cable, and satellite television. Ironically, some of the astronauts aboard the ill fated Columbia were trained to deploy communications satellites – the very same type that would later beam the news of their demise around the world. For many old enough to remember, the news harkened back memories of the only other fatal shuttle accident that ever took place – the explosion of the space shuttle challenger shortly after lift off from the launch pad at the Kennedy Space Centre on January 28, 1986. After that disaster, the Shuttle program was suspended. Two years later, the shuttle flights were resumed; the agency had been revamped and was committed to avoiding a similar accident.

This image show’s the shuttle’s ascending to a higher plane of existence.
