(ORDO NEWS) — The wreckage of the Challenger was found off the coast of Florida. The history of this spacecraft is tragic for all of America. In 1986, he crashed 73 seconds into the flight.
This disaster was seen by millions of people because the launch was broadcast live. And almost forty years later, parts of the ship were discovered by divers completely by accident.
On board the spacecraft were not only cosmonauts, but also, for example, a teacher who won a flight into space in the lottery.
The Challenger crew consisted of seven people: Michael J. Smith, Francis R. Scobie, Ronald E. McNair, Allison S. Onizuka, Sharon Christa McAuliffe, Gregory Jarvis, and Judith A. Resnick.
A film about the Bermuda Triangle was shot in that area. Divers searched the bottom of the coast for an aircraft from the Second World War, and found the wreckage of a spaceship.
The film crew together with the divers turned to NASA and showed the wreckage of the shuttle.
They are located at a depth of 6 meters in the Atlantic Ocean. This is the first major discovery of Challenger fragments in a quarter of a century.
The discovery became too emotional for the families whose relatives were part of the crew.
These people witnessed a terrible tragedy, their loved ones died before their eyes. Not many wreckages were found after the accident, no bodies were found at all.
Therefore, a new accidental discovery became an important part of the history of seven families and the entire country. Maybe someone will finally find peace of mind.
NASA confirmed the authenticity of the discovered fragments. Now they don’t know whether to raise the debris from the bottom of the ocean or not.
The reason is simple they don’t know what to do with them. They will make a decision and announce it in the near future.
