  • About

    The Challenger 7 Memorial Park is a park in Webster, Texas, where NASA has its flight control center. The Challenger was a space shuttle that blew up, killing 6 astronauts and a teacher on board as it took off. The 7 who died are known as the Challenger 7.

    “As a kid my mom dated a guy who helped build the rockets that were on the space shuttle. Whenever I said I wanted to be an astronaut my mom told me I couldn’t be one because it was too dangerous. I chose to use the 8 because I feel like my dreams died on that fatal flight and I was never able to dream as big as the other kids around me.”
