    I just received this in my email and thought that some of you might be interested in watching it. *waves a fist at the History Channel bashers in the UFO thread [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]*

    Dear Viewers,

    We here at The History Channel watched along with you as the tragic events
    unfolded over this weekend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families
    and friends of the victims of this disaster. We cannot help but be reminded that
    the men and women engaged in the pursuit of knowledge very often risk their
    own lives in the process. They are our heroes and they represent the greatness
    in all of us. The exploration of space and the hi-tech advances of the 20th
    century have propelled us well beyond our imaginations. As we mourn the loss
    of seven heroic men and women who braved the challenges of space
    exploration, The History Channel looks back at the accomplishments and the
    sacrifices.

    To provide a historical perspective on the Space Shuttle program, The History
    Channel presents History Now: Tragedy in the Sky, three documentaries airing
    tonight, Monday, February 3, from 9pm to midnight ET/PT. Morton Dean will
    host the programs, which will attempt to provide a context for these tragic
    events. The programs are:

    9pm / 8CT: THE CHALLENGER DISASTER
    The personal and professional recollections of the Challenger Disaster by CBS
    news correspondents who covered it including rarely seen footage.

    10pm / 9CT: THE SPACE SHUTTLE
    The story of the Space Shuttle as the triumphant saga of the dream of flight,
    tempered by the physical and technological challenges faced by a group of
    determined people.

    11pm / 10CT: APOLLO 13
    A review of the Apollo 13 mission and the issues it raised. Includes interviews
    with Apollo 13 pilot, director, commander, and module pilot, among others.
