Remembering the Challenger Crew, Challenger Center for Space Science Education
"On this day 31 years ago, Space Shuttle Challenger and its seven-member crew were tragically lost. The crew members - Dick Scobee, Gregory Jarvis, Christa McAuliffe, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Judith Resnik, and Michael J. Smith - were part of the first Teacher in Space Project. Challenger Center, formed by the families of the crew, is dedicated to the educational spirit of their mission. Every year, together with our 43 Challenger Learning Centers, we provide more than 250,000 students with the opportunity to become scientists, engineers, and innovators through unique education experiences."
