When I thought about the 80’s I remember reading about the Challenger Disaster. The Challenger Disaster was a failed attempt to reach space that resulted in the space shuttle blowing up in front of the public’s eyes. Happening in 1986, it was in the middle of the decade and was in the forefront of people’s minds. The Challenger Mission was the space programme’s 10th mission. it ended when just 73 seconds after takeoff, killing all seven astronauts on board. It was especially awful because millions of school children watching live across the nation.
The launch failed because there was an external fuel tank explosion. gasses and fules mixed and caused a big exlosion.
This event was often discussed as one of most media covered events of the century.
