NASA Names

November 26, 1986

The fellow who names the National Aeronautics and Space Administration space shuttles is either a dolt, or has a morbid sense of humor.

Considering where the cabin crew of the previous shuttle ended up, the last name to consider for the Challenger's successor should be "Atlantis." But that's what it's named!
