Extremely Eerie

This 1984 video is discussed below in the context of Heath Ledger's (and certainly Kurt Cobain's) death, but since today is the 22nd anniversary of the Challenger disaster, I thought the montage that opens it should be looked at with a synchromystic eye...

The Shuttle launches...

Ascends....

...and the very next second.

Chilling.

  1. I was watching the tv at the time of the launch... The screen turned blue in the middle of a programme...i was eating a pancake...The blue screen simply read.

    " The space shuttle challenger has exploded on take off killing all crew members"

    It was a very unusual way to announce it..the blue screen i mean. No news story had ever been broken like that before or since...

  2. It seems to be have strangely forgotten. Sometimes I think of it as some 9/11 foreshadowing...
