Thirty years ago this morning (1986 January 28), the NASA Space Shuttle Challenger (Mission STS-51-L) broke apart 73 seconds after the 11:38 a.m. EST launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Seven astronauts perished following the spacecraft's break-up and fall into the ocean. Only Columbia and Challenger made use of all those white LRSI tiles on the crew cabin section. Discovery through Endeavour made use of the new AFRSI blankets instead.
