Wreaths were laid in memory of those men and women who lost their lives in the quest for space exploration.

On the last Thursday in January, NASA pays tribute to the crews of Apollo 1 and space shuttles Challenger and Columbia, as well as other NASA colleagues who lost their lives while furthering the cause of exploration and discovery, during the agency's annual Day of Remembrance. This year, NASA acting Administrator Robert Lightfoot and other agency senior officials led an observance at Arlington National Cemetery.
