CHALLENGER: Soaring with McAuliffe ™ (Virtual Chautauqua Performance)

Journey through Christa McAuliffe’s life in this multi-media Immersive Living Experience, performed by Judith Kalaora of History At Play. CHALLENGER: Soaring With Christa McAuliffe ™ pays homage to the United States’ Teacher in Space program and the crew of the NASA space shuttle. Discover the true story behind the internationally recognized heroine. Thirty-five years ago, the space shuttle Challenger exploded just over a minute after liftoff, killing all seven crew members, including New Hampshire schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe. The Challenger explosion on Jan. 28, 1986, happening just 73 seconds after liftoff due to an O-ring seal failure, was the first fatal accident for NASA since 1967. The millions who watched the liftoff were inspired by McAuliffe, 37, who was the first American civilian to board a space shuttle. She was chosen from a pool of 11,000 teachers to board the Challenger mission as part of a NASA program called the “Teacher in Space Project.” Performed by Judith Kalaora from Boston's History At Play ™ as Christa McAuliffe. The event is Free and will feature audience Q & A.

Registration required.  After the event everyone who has registered will receive an email with a link to the presentation that will be available for two days only. For more info:
