    1986.I was six years old watching this live in a classroom back when i was in elementary school. We (us kids) didn't know what to make of it when this tragedy occurred. The teacher had to explain it to us.

    I remember my Mum told me that she and her family were watching this live. She said it was horrible to watch...

    I have read about it in books when I was a kid, also talked about it with my parents. Could have been a horrible sight watching it live.

    I was born four years after that disaster. I do remember the Shuttle Columbia exploding when I was thirteen.
