NASA to Pay Tribute on Day of Remembrance

Administration Remembers Those Lost Along The Way

NASA's Day Of Remembrance is this Thursday, on January 27th. The day is the time to reflect on the sacrifices of those lost in space exploration, and this year marks 55 years to the day since the Apollo 1 tragedy. 

Bill Nelson, administrator, will lead an observance at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, starting with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Separate observances for the Apollo 1, Challenger, and Columbia crews will follow, and later in the day deputy admin Pam Melroy, and associate admin Bob Cabana will moderate a panel discussion on safety. Their panel will air on the NASA channel, website, and app at 15:30 EST, focusing on the lessons learned from loss. The administration will release special online content, recognizing that many cannot attend events in-person. 

“NASA’s Day of Remembrance is an opportunity to honor members of the NASA family who lost their lives in our shared endeavor to advance exploration and discovery for the good of all humanity,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson. “Every day, we have an opportunity to further uplift the legacies of those who gave their lives in pursuit of discovery by taking the next giant leap, meeting every challenge head-on, as they did. In doing so, we also must never forget the lessons learned from each tragedy, and embrace our core value of safety.”
