My Favorite Photo

It was quite hard to pick my favorite photo because there are so many that mean so much to me, but I finally decided on this one. This picture was taken last spring after my Track team won the conference championship. After having practice at least once a day for the entire school year, and sacrificing most of my weekends to train, It felt so good to finally get the result that I wanted. It was amazing to see how excited and happy my teammates were as well. I feel like this picture captures the happy place after a long road of struggle.

The 80’s

When I thought about the 80’s I remember reading about the Challenger Disaster. The Challenger Disaster was a failed attempt to reach space that resulted in the space shuttle blowing up in front of the public’s eyes. Happening in 1986, it was in the middle of the decade and was in the forefront of people’s minds. The Challenger Mission was the space programme‚Äôs 10th mission. it ended when just 73 seconds after takeoff, killing all seven astronauts on board. It was especially awful because millions of school children watching live across the nation.

The launch failed because there was an external fuel tank explosion. gasses and fules mixed and caused a big exlosion.

This event was often discussed as one of most media covered events of the century.
