Space Shuttle Challenger, the second aerospace plane ever used in US history, was named after an British research ship with the same name in 19th century. The first Chinese astronaut was sent to outer space by this exact shuttle. Its first flight was in 1983, only 3 years before the shocking tragedy took place.

On 28th January 1986, Space Shuttle Challenger was going to finish its 10th task as usual, even though its launch had been delayed for several times. The crew members, including 6 astronauts and a selected teacher, planned to set satellites and observations for Halley's comet, and give 2 lessons to children during media for this mission.

However, the exciting mood became frightening and sorrowful with a sudden explosion after 73 seconds. To avoid more casualties, the commander chose to detonate Space Shuttle Challenger at that critical moment. In subsequent investigation, the failure of a o-ring above the right solid rocket propulsion was blamed for the accident. All crew members on the shuttle died.
