Challenger Disaster: Tragic Space Flight (American Disasters Series)by Carmen Bredeson
The nation watched in horror on that frigid January morning in 1986, as the space shuttle Challenger lifted off and then suddenly exploded. One of America's most anticipated events had just turned into the most tragic space flight in history. Among the seven victims was Christa McAuliffe, a school teacher from New Hampshire, who would have been the first nonastronaut in space. This catastrophic event, etched deeply in the nation's collective memory, is fully documented here in Carmen Bredeson's latest American Disasters title.
