This is BIG for New Hampshire & the FIRST Robotics program. The bill to make this happen passed the U.S. House this last Thursday with bipartisan support.

The bill instructs the U.S. Mint to issue 350,000 $1 silver coins to commemorate Christa Mcauliffe, the NH science teacher who died in the January 1986 ‘Challenger’ Space Shuttle disaster. The proceeds from the sale of this coin will go to benefit the FIRST Robotics initiative.

The bill, however, has to be be approved by Donald Trump. That should not be a problem, since Christa, in marked contrast to Harriet Tubman, is white & good-looking. Well, it had to be said, and few others will, though they will think it.
