I remember watching TV that summer and the two events that stand out were the Approach and Landing Test for Enterprise. Our local CBS affiliate broke in to bring us coverage. Then about a week later the TV interrupted programming to bring the news that Elvis had died in Memphis. I was much more excited about the Shuttle flight and our future in exploring space. I just felt sad for Elvis and his family. That's how my 9 year-old mind worked.
