Do you Remember?

  • On this day in 1986, at 11:38 a.m. EST the space shuttle Challenger lifted off from Cape Canaveral. Tragically, seventy-three seconds later, people at the launch watched in disbelief as the shuttle broke up in a forking plume of smoke and fire. Millions more watched on live television. There were no survivors. It took two years (September 1988), when space shuttle flights resumed with the successful launching of the Discovery.
