As predicted by James Oberg in his fine article Seven myths about the Challenger shuttle disaster, the New York Times continues to propagate the myths in their homepage blurb at right—though they only had room to include two of them.

As Mr. Oberg says:

The flight, and the lost crewmembers, deserve proper recognition and authentic commemoration. Historians, reporters, and every citizen need to take the time this week to remember what really happened, and especially to make sure their memories are as close as humanly possible to what really did happen.
