Teacher-astronaut determined to carry on dream: "In just over a week, Barbara Morgan should have been rocketing into orbit as NASA's first fully trained educator-astronaut, carrying on the shattered dream of Christa McAuliffe. Like the space shuttle fleet, though, Morgan is grounded indefinitely. Her ship, Columbia, is gone along with seven more friends, lost in a wintry Texas sky.
"Yet the former Idaho elementary schoolteacher who was McAuliffe's backup for the doomed Challenger flight is determined to persevere. NASA remains committed to the education-in-space program as well."
