TV Displays Disaster As the Challenger Explodes

On-point historical photographs combined with strong narration bring the story of the Challenger explosion to life. Kids will learn about how it happened, the subsequent investigation into its causes, and how it set back U.S. investment in space exploration. As an added bonus, readers will learn about how this played out on TV. By the time of the Challenger, the only network covering it in live time was CNN, as people thought of space flight as "old hat." This brought space flight back into the public consciousness, albeit not in a good way. Accompanying video will show readers what viewers saw at the time.
