A Fragment Of The “Challenger” Was Found At The Bottom Of The Ocean 

Recently, a film crew working on a show for the History Channel discovered a piece of the Challenger about six meters long at the bottom of the ocean. It was a stunning and completely unexpected find, as the team’s real goal was to find the remains of ships lost in the Bermuda Triangle.

This is the first major find of the wreckage of the Space Shuttle Challenger in more than 25 years.

According to the report, divers were looking for the wreckage of an aircraft that went missing in the area in 1945 for a documentary.  Instead, they stumbled upon a partially sandy object, the sight of which prompted the film crew to contact NASA. Agency employees, having studied the video made under water, confirmed that the found object was a fragment of the Challenger.

The report notes that the loss of the Challenger and then the shuttle Columbia in 2003 prompted NASA to establish the Office of Mission Safety and Accomplishment and develop new risk assessment procedures.

The Challenger exploded in the air 73 seconds after liftoff from a spaceport in Florida due to a technical problem. On the night before the launch, the air temperature dropped below zero, due to which ice formed on the skin of the shuttle, which affected the integrity of the sealing rings in the joints of the solid booster segments. This, in turn, led to the explosion of the external fuel tank.

A documentary about the discovery of the wreckage of the Challenger will air on the History Channel on November 22.
