Space Shuttle Challenger disaster

On January 28, 1986, seven astronauts "slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God." America’s space program was never the same.
 
The Space Shuttle Challenger Explodes on its 10th flight during mission STS-51-L. The explosion occurred 73 seconds after liftoff and was actually the result of rapid deceleration and not combustion of fuel.
 
Aboard Challenger during STS-51-L:
 
Francis "Dick" Scobee (Commander)
Michael Smith (Pilot)
Judith Resnik (Mission Specialist)
Ellison Onizuka (Mission Specialist)
Ronald McNair (Mission Specialist)
Gregory Jarvis (Payload Specialist)
Sharon Christa McAuliffe (Payload Specialist - Teacher in Space)

Go or no Go: The Challenger Legacy [ Documentary ]
 
Produced by Bret Sigler / Retro Report
Original Release June 2nd, 2014
 
http://www.retroreport.org/video/major-malfunction-lessons-from-challenger/

Those who saw it never forgot: the Space Shuttle Challenger launched on January 28, 1986 only to break apart 73 seconds later, killing seven astronauts, including the first teacher in space -- Christa McAuliffe.
 
Retro Report revisits the tragic event  -- and the 2003 Columbia disaster -- through interviews with key participants, and explores the forces that lead groups within large organizations to make dreadfully wrong decisions.

107km straight up for the flying Penis^W New Shepard rocket thingie!

The fact it has a single motor is quite impressive too.

(edit)
Shame the comments are so retarded, but that's what comments are for isn't it? Getting yours out and waving it around then having a bunch of other people comparing it to sea cucumbers and things...

Just last week, there was considerable speculation that Microchip would buy Atmel. The deal wasn’t done, and there was precedent that this deal wouldn’t happen – earlier this year, Dialog made an approach at Atmel. Now, though, the deal is done: Microchip…

+Paul Ferguson forwarded this interesting write-up on the possibility of a large planet waaaay out there. How far out there?  Far enough that an orbit would be about 20K years.  Or as Led Zeppelin put it:

It's been a long time, been a long time
Been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time
The giant planet, discovered through mathematical modeling and computer simulations, is nicknamed Planet Nine and traces a bizarre, highly elongated orbit in the outer solar system.
