Was there any chemicals onboard the Space Ship?

The people of the world want to know...
ALl living creatures on Earth have one question to ask NASA and the US Gov't.

This reminds me of 1986... and the plan of the next launch of the Challenger...

This may be an unpopular sentiment but...

While I'm not happy that the astronaughts died, I like the symbolism of the American space shuttle bursting into flames over Texas of all places.

It flies in the face of American arrogance and self-righteousness.

There are definately good things about scientific exploration, but the scientific loss (if any) is not what the explosion brings to mind for me.

It is a sobering vision of the laws of the universe.

Rome also fell.

Hopefully (corrupt) Americans will fall soon as well.
