JANUARY 28, 1986. The last, brief ascent of space shuttle Challenger
Today, on the 30th anniversary of the Challenger accident, Chapman University accepts the papers of Allan McDonald to be housed in Leatherby Libraries. His papers join those of a Roger Boisjoly in the library’s archives. Read McDonald’s guest post at Lofty Ambitions.
We’ve also written before about Challenger at Lofty Ambitions, so take a minute to search. If we weren’t at a writing residency (without wifi) working on our book Generation Space, we’d likely write more today. But we are writing about space in other ways, and there are plenty of articles and books out there. We recommend especially Margaret Lazarus Dean’s cover story in Popular Mechanics.
