History of the Challenger Disaster
On January 28 1986 the NASA association sent a space shuttle called the Challenger (OV-099) into space that turned into a catastrophe with the loss of all crew members.
On the day of the catastrophic disaster it was an unusually chilly and extremely icy. At 11:38 am EST the Challenger started the liftoff sequence but 73 seconds into it's flight disaster struck.
At 73 seconds into the tragic incident, the right solid rocket booster was leaking harmful plumes of pressurized burning gas which led to the structural integrity of the craft to be ripped apart by aerodynamic forces.
The Challenger was the arguably the worst catastrophe in american history which could have been easily prevented with simple communication.
