The lost lessons of astronaut Challenger are finally taught in space




CAPE CANAVERAL – The lost lessons of Christa McAuliffe are finally taught in space.

Thirty-two years after the Challenger disaster, a pair of professors turned astronauts will pay tribute to McAuliffe by conducting science classes at the International Space Station.

As NASA's first designated master in space, McAuliffe was going to experiment with fluids and demonstrate Newton's laws of motion for school children. She never reached orbit: she and six crew members died during the takeoff of the space shuttle Challenger on January 28, 1986.

Astronauts Joe Acaba and Ricky Arnold will perform some of McAuliffe's lessons in the coming months. He just shared the news during a television link on Friday with students at his alma mater, Framingham State University, near Boston.
