Trivia

While NASA's official position was that the Challenger crew died instantly, on July 28, 1986, Dr. Joseph P. Kerwin, director of Life Sciences at the Johnson Space Center, submitted his report on the cause of death of the Challenger astronauts, stating that the cause of the crew's death was inconclusive, but that the force of the initial explosion was too weak to have caused death or even serious injury. From the time of the explosion to the time of impact was two minutes and fifty-five seconds. See more »

Fantastic!
29 January 2019 | by shanapopeSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed this movie-a solid production. I remember that day vividly. Now I have perspective on what the engineers who tried to stop the launch went through. The cast did a great job.
