Uploader comment: The NASA family lost seven of its own on the morning of January 28, 1986, when a booster engine failed, causing the Shuttle Challenger to break apart just 73 seconds after launch. In this photo from January 9, 1986, the Challenger crew takes a break during countdown training at NASA's Kennedy Space Center.
