Below Zero, Space Shuttle Challenger, Hazlet Committee

Good morning Holmdel and Hazlet!


It’s going to be another cold one today, with temperatures around 10 this morning. Unfortunately, it will feel more like 5 below with the wind chill, according to weather.com. Expect temperatures to reach around 20 today.

Today in History

Perhaps a moment of silence would be in order this morning. On this day in history in 1986, the space shuttle Challenger lifted off at 11:38 a.m. The ship was carrying Christa McAuliffe, who was about to become the first United States civilian to travel into space. The New Hampshire social studies teacher had won a competition to be come a member of the crew, according to history.com.

A little over a minute after take off, the shuttle exploded. There were no survivors.
