It's actually a popular misconception that space shuttle Challenger exploded, what actually happened if far more horrifying. The solid fuel rockets "exploded" (disintegrated really) and the back of the shuttle fell apart. The front of the shuttle where the flight deck was survived the breakup and plummeted back to earth. The crews' cause of death was the collision with the ocean, not the breakup.

When the flight deck was recovered from the ocean floor they found that the emergency oxygen supplies of 3 of the 4 crew members was used for 2 minutes 45 seconds, approximately the amount of time it took for them to fall. They also found that switches had been flipped by the crew in an attempt to restore power before it crashed.

So, what you're saying is when they were plummeting down and hit the ocean, they had no knowledge that they were even plummeting into the ocean

they were still alive as they hit the ocean and were in oxygen masks and still trying to fix the ship before it hit. they fought for their lives till the last breath is what he really said.

If you think about it, that's actually pretty ******* badass. As an astronaut you pretty much know that you're screwed, but you still keep it together and do everything you can.

Astronauts are awesome.

Challenger exploded on its entry into the atmosphere? As in "when it was on the pad, it wasn't into the atmosphere"?

As in, when it left orbit.
One of the ablative heat tiles was damaged, causing the entire shuttle to burn up during re-entry.

it was taking off. it didn't left orbit. it barely got to 15000 meters, it didn't even reached orbit. I have the feeling both you and OP confuse Challenger with the Columbia disaster.

You could be right, but is there any proof of that?
I'd figure we'd just have more cosmic radiation and higher water levels.

Just found out recently there was a guy who knew it was likely the challenger would malfunction due to faulty boosters and nobody paid him any heed.

Nobody could have predicted that Faulty Boosters would sabotage the ship. Helly, Dr. Boosters helped design that ship, who would've suspected he'd destroy his own creation?

From what I understand, some of the engineers wanted to scrap the flight because they thought the O-rings would fail in the cold (which is what happened). But the flight went on as scheduled because the engineers had no data to prove that the rings would fail (the tests had never been run).

I find it quite interesting how there are so few accidents in the space programs (it's GREAT don't get me wrong) Apollo 13 was crippled from a faulty coil in the oxygen tank and Challenger was destroyed from a simple little seal, Columbia burned up in re-entry after a tile blew off during takeoff

Boisjoly was relieved when the flight lifted off, as his investigations had predicted that the SRB would explode during the initial take-off. However, seventy-three seconds later, he witnessed the shuttle disaster on television.   
*Sad faceplam*

I heard it was a faulty seal, that'd be the fault with the construction not the engineering (not assuming I heard right, just a thought)

This is a 3-minute well animated story about a guy who was on that ship and it will hopefully touch you the same way it fondled me.

But seriously, you should check this out.

I came here from a post I laughed at; I was happy. Then I started reading this and got kinda sad and feely when he said "Papa?" Then I laughed again at the end. I'm confused and I don't know how to feel anymore. Three words: Emotional roller coaster.
