Today is the 26th anniversary of the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger, on which Dr. Judith Resnik was a mission specialist.   Dr. Resnik was a biomedical engineer and staff fellow in the Laboratory of Neurophysiology at the National Institutes of Health and a senior systems engineer in product development with Xerox before joining NASA.   She was the second American woman astronaut, logging 145 hours in orbit.  Among her many honors, the lunar crater Resnik, located on the far side of the Moon, was named in her memory.
