Today Marks the 34th Anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger Explosion

January 28th, 2020 marks the 34th Anniversary of the Challenger Space Shuttle Disaster. Seven Crew members lost their lives shortly after their 73-second flight launching from Kennedy Space Station. This horrific disaster is NASA’s greatest catastrophe in history. Some objectives of Mission STS-51L included the “Comet Halley Active Monitoring Program” (CHAMP), a fluid dynamics experiment, and lesson plans and telecasts by Christa McAuliffe, who would’ve been the first teacher in space.
