151 - The Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster Do Go On

    • Comedy

In the mid 1980s, NASA was struggling to capture the imagination of the American public like they once did. To promote the future of space travel, they decided to send a civilian into orbit aboard the Challenger Space Shuttle. A teacher named Christa McAuliffe was chosen to accompany six NASA astronauts. Sadly, with the world watching on, the Shuttle suddenly exploded 73 seconds after launch. It was a terrible tradgedy that rocked the world, but could it have been avoided? Had several people warned NASA about this exact scenario?
