  • Published 9 months ago

31 years ago, NASA experienced one of the greatest disasters in the history of the space program. The space shuttle Challenger broke apart just 73 seconds into the flight.

The disaster resulted in a two and half years hiatus, and a special unit by president Ronald Reagan created to investigate the accident.

January 28th marked the 31st anniversary of the first shuttle disaster. We take a look back at the accident, and check how it impacted our future.

They say that sometimes good things need to crash, in order for better things to rise. And that is probably the best way to describe the accident. Thanks to the Challenger disaster, NASA invested even more in the space program, reaching heights nobody thought possible at the time.
