Then I realized he was serious.
I was disorientated enough to ponder the effect of the explosion on the markets, upon which he (gently) reminded me it was Saturday.
Once I had a chance to imbibe some caffeine and let the drugs take effect, and I had some time to watch the videos and hear some of the preliminaries, I can pretty much concluded a few things:
- It was an accident.
- This was a 20+ year old SPACE vehicle.
- It was mercifully quick.
May the deities of their individual belief guide them to their rest.
