Rick Husband's Words

Previous Entry | Home | Next Entry

Rick Husband, the commander of STS-107, radioed the following words back to earth to commemorate the loss of Apollo 1 and Challenger. They're just as appropriate in commemoration of his crew:

They made the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives in service to their country, and for all mankind. Their dedication and devotion to the exploration of space was an inspiration to each of us, and still motivates people around the world to achieve great things in service to others.

...

Our thoughts and prayers go to their families.

These were said on January 28th, 2003. I transcribed and edited them from a CNN rebroadcast.
