"I was working on the Teacher in Space Project for NASA in 1986, and had prepared a lot of music specifically for this mission".
The Challenger disaster affected Jonn deeply. He decided to use the music he had created to express his feelings musically, and the result became his first recording. In 1988 the album was used in the opening production of the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium in Concord, New Hampshire.
Christa's parents were guests of honor that day and the music is dedicated to her memory.
