Trivia

While the Challenger crew were the first to die during a mission, they were not the first NASA crew to be killed. The three-man crew of Apollo 204 (aka, Apollo 1), Gus Grissom, Roger Chaffee, Ed White, were killed in a fire in their capsule during a launch practice run on the launch pad on Jan. 27, 1967. Challenger: The Final Flight makes no mention of this earlier fatality. See more »

Missing name?
22 September 2020 | by drider42See all my reviews

I found it interesting that the name "Roger Boisjoly" wasn't mentioned once. The man who probably fought harder than anyone to fix the o-ring problem gets passed by? While the series held my interest for all four episodes, a little more tech and a little less teacher would have been better, for me at least.
