And I remember the warm, humid night in August of 1983, when we all
left our offices and went up on the roof of the biological sciences
building at UF to watch the first night launch (of Challenger) from
the Kennedy Space Center. Gainesville is 140 miles from the Cape, yet
it was so big and so bright, it was hard to believe it was that far
away. We all stood in utter, awe-struck silence as it arched over,
headed northeast, and trailed out of sight in the dark.
