Event description

Description

On January 28, 1986, the world watched in shock as the space shuttle Challenger exploded less than two minutes after its launch, killing all of its crew. Among them: high school teacher Christa McAuliffe, who had been chosen from more than 11,000 applicants to participate in the NASA Teacher in Space Project.

Journey through Christa’s life in this multi-media immersive living history performance, suitable for all ages. Discover the true story behind the incredible teacher, the American pioneer, and the internationally recognized heroine in a program made possible due to the generosity of the Bob Jolly Charitable Trust. The performance has been approved by the McAuliffe and Corrigan Families.

This program is suitable for all ages; families are welcome to attend.
