Madelyn Abernathy did a performance on the Challenger tragedy from the point of view of stand-by astronaut and teacher, Barbara Radding. She was the alternate astronaut for Christa McAuliffe if Christa was unable to make the Challenger launch.
We learned how Richard Feynman, the lead investigator of the Rogers Commission Report,  found out about issues days before the explosions regarding some O-Rings that froze when they were at 22 degrees the night before.
Just what DID happen?
The Rogers Commission Report found that the Challenger accident was caused by a failure in the O-rings sealing the aft field joint on the right solid rocket booster, causing pressurized hot gases and eventually flame to "blow by" the O-ring and contact the adjacent external tank, causing structural failure. The failure of the O-rings was attributed to a design flaw, as their performance could be too easily compromised by factors including the low temperature on the day of launch.

Bart Hill-brought his wife Napier
Jordan Kaughman guest was wife Kristen
