30th anniversary of Space Shuttle Challenger disaster

FLORIDA - Thirty years ago today the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded on live tv killing six astronauts and a teacher. The fateful flight lasted only 73 seconds before it became a national tragedy.

President Ronald Reagan spoke to a grieving nation instead of giving the State of the Union Address saying: “The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.” The seven astronauts onboard were Michael Smith, Dick Scobee, Judith Resnik, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and school teacher Christa McAuliffe.
