Challenger Disaster: A Space Flight Tragedy

Challenger Disaster: A Space Flight Tragedy One of the most heartbreaking moments in American space travel came on January 28, 1986 when the Challenger Space Shuttle broke apart only 73 seconds into its launch. Killing all seven crew members on board, including the inaugural member of the Teacher in Space project, the tragedy marked the first time multiple lives were lost on an American space flight. Devastating the nation, and the NASA program, the event served to make future space flights safer as regulations were tightened following the catastrophe. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the events that led to the Challenger disaster.
