Tribute to Lost Astronauts

Not specifically Trek, but it sort of is, because where would Star Trek and NASA be without each other, seriously?

Since today is the anniversary of Apollo 1, tomorrow is the 25th anniversary of the Challenger disaster, and we're a few days off from the anniversary of the loss of Columbia (dear NASA, stop having missions at the end of January), NASA has posted this:

Interactive Day of Remembrance

(There's no text to c/p, or I would--it's a photo montage to music, mostly, showing the lost crew of each of those missions.)

It's very touching and hopeful and sad.
