Was in college when this happened, in the cafeteria have a late breakfast/early lunch. Some girls screamed and started crying, we all just kind of stood there with our jaws dropped.
I have been lucky enough also to see a space shuttle launch and some of the other rockets go up from the cape. Working for Lockheed has really been a cool experience from the space part and the IT part. The Mars lander's were build right here at the Waterton campus, going into the clean rooms to see them was amazing.
I can't believe they did not say anything on the news about this.
