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.

Leonard Martinez’s presentation looks at the heady topic of anxiety through the lens of music. All you’ll feel is calm - hopefully.
