 1 February 2008 Jery Stedinger Lecture 06 6 Space Program Disasters Help Chart Its Future Published: January 24, 2006 Anniversaries of the three most somber milestones in the American program of human spaceflight are clustered in the days ahead. Twenty years ago, on Jan. 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff, killing all on board, including a schoolteacher. Three years ago, on Feb. 1, 2003, the shuttle Columbia broke apart over Texas on its return from orbit, killing the seven astronauts. It was again two and a half years before a shuttle returned to orbit, and it encountered a potentially disastrous problem. http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/24/science/space/24chal.html
