Space Shuttle Challenger (Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-099) was the second orbiter of NASA's space shuttle program to be put into service, after Columbia. Challenger was built by Rockwell International's Space Transportation Systems Division, in Downey, California. Its maiden flight, STS-6, began on April 4, 1983.
Mars Colony: Challenger is a 3D first, third person game that offers you the challenge of setting up a remote base on the surface of Mars. At its core, the game was derived from a simulator where everything is interactively tied together. Tags associated with Mars Colony: Challenger: space sci-fi simulation adventure RPG survival .

Icicles hang from the space shuttle launch tower at Kennedy Space Center in Florida in a picture taken during an inspection on the morning of the Challenger disaster. Temperatures on the day of Challenger's launch were the in the 30s Fahrenheit, or below freezing Celsius-the coldest ever recorded for a shuttle launch, shuttle historian Neal said. Following the Challenger accident, NASA did require that the other remaining shuttles be outfitted with a bail-out system, which consists of a ten-foot-long (three-meter-long) "escape pole" that can be deployed during emergencies. Astronauts can "hook on to the pole, slide out to the end, drop off under the shuttle wing, and then parachute to safety," Neal explained.
On 28 January 1986, the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded shortly after taking off. A space scientist recalls how it transformed Nasa’s plans to explore beyond Earth. I had a dark cubbyhole of an office overlooking a doorway that was a short-cut between our offices and the bar, where there was a television. At just after five o’clock, when I was thinking of packing up for the day, a colleague banged on my window. The shuttle has exploded, he said. We’re going to see if there’s any news on TV. He had heard a news bulletin on his radio and wanted to find out what had happened. The news was broadcast at specific times – and the BBC evening news was not on until 6pm.
Sharon Christa McAuliffe (née Corrigan; September 2, 1948 – January 28, 1986) was an American teacher and astronaut from Concord, New Hampshire and one of the seven crew members killed in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. She received her bachelor's degree in education and history from Framingham State College in 1970 and also a master's degree in education, supervision and administration from Bowie State University in 1978.
28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded just 73 seconds after blasting off from Florida's Kennedy Space Center, killing all seven astronauts on board - including New Hampshire educator Christa McAuliffe, a civilian who had been selected to fly via NASA's "Teacher in Space" program. The whole country and the whole world were in shock when that happened, because that was the first time the United States had actually lost a space vehicle with crew on board," said former NASA astronaut Leroy Chiao, who flew three space shuttle missions during his career (in 1994, 1996 and 2000), and also served as commander of the International Space.
Hours after the worst space disaster in history, NASA scientists hadn't the slightest idea what had caused the first fatal in-air accident in 56 . Early speculation, based on fuzzy television pictures, centered on the shuttle's giant external fuel tank, loaded with 526,000 gallons of highly explosive liquid hydrogen and oxygen.
The Challenger exploded on January 28, 1986. This story originally appeared in the February 2016 issue of Popular Mechanics to mark the 30th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster on January 28, 1986, when all seven people on board the shuttle were killed.
