The Space Shuttle Challenger - What Went Wrong?!

BY JOHN KOLANDER
@ VOL 14 ON JUN 05, 2015

"The problem was they had already had failures previous to this, and they kept launching when they shouldn't have."

In The Space Shuttle Challenger - What Went Wrong?! from Sioux Falls Vol. 14, former Nasa technician John Kolander talks about the tragic Challenger disaster that occurred January 28th, 1986 and his perspective while working from the Launch Control Center at Vandenberg Air Force Base. In this stoic presentation, Kolander recollects that heavy moment, systematically breaking down in simple terms the chain of events that when wrong.

Revisit the tragedy that broke our hearts but not our spirits, and reflect on the those that gave their lives in our ongoing reach for the stars and beyond.



Revist the tragedy that broke our hearts but not our spirits, and reflect on the those that gave their lives in our ongoing reach for the stars. 

Married 40 years to his wife Barbara, John and his family have lived in Sioux Falls for almost ten years and this is now home.
