oh my god

February 1, 2003

i just woke up and all i can say is “oh my god”. The space shuttle Columbia appears to have been lost. I’m watching the scenes of what appears to be a breakup on CNN. I’m still groggy, having been awake for about 5 minutes.

It’s kinda ironic, since I realized yesterday I completely forgot the Challenger anniversary last week.

6x the times of sound the shuttle broke up into multiple pieces and Miles O’Brien from CNN is now talking about the pieces of the shuttle being reported as landing on the ground at the speed of a shotgun. O’Brien is now saying that a piece of insulation fell off during the launch and is getting audible cues from off camera about who they’ve talked to.

oy. I’m gonna just watch the coverage. wow.
