On this day in 1986, the @NASA Space Shuttle #Challenger exploded just 73 seconds after takeoff, killing all 7 astronauts on board. Today we remember the brave crew & keep their families & loved ones in our hearts.
I was in my elementary school library with other students watching it. A teacher got up and turned it off. We knew what happened but we didn’t. Years later my coworker told me he was on a Navy ship picking up debris from the crash. #Challenger
