A BRIEF HISTORY
CHALLENGER CENTER FOR SPACE SCIENCE EDUCATION
Following the tragedy of the January 28, 1986 Challenger 51-L “Teacher in Space” launch, the families of the Challenger crew vowed to continue the crew’s mission of broadening scientific knowledge through education.
Led by June Scobee Rodgers, wife of Shuttle Commander Dick Scobee, on April 24, 1986 the families created a living memorial to Commander Richard “Dick” Scobee, Pilot Michael J. Smith, Mission Specialist Ron McNair, Mission Specialist Ellison Onizuka, Mission Specialist Judy Resnik, Payload Specialist Gregory Jarvis and Teacher in Space Participant Christa McAuliffe. The organization created a clear mission: “The Challenger Center will be the symbol of our nation’s continuing support of space exploration and an affirmation of our faith in the future. It will re-energize our country’s commitment to educational excellence and increase scientific literacy among our people.”
