NASA Responds to Beyoncé's Apology for Challenger Sample


NASA has responded to Beyoncé’s apology for using an audio sample taken from NASA’s 1986 Challenger disaster in her new song “XO”.

The organization says:

The Challenger accident is an important part of our history; a tragic reminder that space exploration is risky and should never be trivialized,” said the statement from Lauren B. Worley, NASA’s press secretary. “NASA works every day to honor the legacy of our fallen astronauts as we carry out our mission to reach for new heights and explore the universe.

We’re not sure if they’ve accepted her apology or merely dismissed it. What do you think?
