Challenger Memorial

Tree & Plaque


Challenger Memorial Grove

These seven trees are dedicated to the memory, spirit and courage of the astronauts of the Space Shuttle Challenger who perished while in flight on January 28, 1986.

"Sunward I've climbed and joined the
tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds-
And done a hundred things you have
not dreamed of-
And, while with silent, lifting mind
I've trod the high untrespassed sanctity of space
Put out my hand, and
touch the face of God."

-"High Flight"
John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

Dedicated by the students of the University of California, Davis
