Colonel Richard O. Covey, retired USAF officer and former NASA astronaut. Covey was the Mission Control Center’s CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator) for the Challenger mission STS-51-L.
Covey can be heard here (at around 0:30) saying “Challenger go at throttle up”. Commander Dick Scobee’s response, “Roger, go at throttle up”, was the final communication from Challenger before the shuttle broke up in-flight, killing the entire crew.

    Occasionally in the war, the Allies encountered martial lagniappe—occupying territory at little or no cost. One of these incidents was the seizure of Sansapor in Dutch New Guinea. 

    70 years ago today, Navy troops carried out a surprise landing without preliminary bombardment or air support near Sansapor in Dutch New Guinea (now West Papau, Indonesia).
