We are remembering the disaster of the space shuttle Challenger which exploded back on January, 28th, 1986.
Seven astronauts died on that launch exactly twenty-eight years ago. One was school-teacher Christa McAuliffe. The challenger shuttle broke apart 73- seconds into its flight.
NASA did not try again for almost three years. The disaster changed the design of rocket boosters and forced NASA to create a new office of safety.
