Go or no Go: The Challenger Legacy
Produced by Bret Sigler
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.
