On January 28, 1986 the space shuttle Challenger disaster devastated the nation. Just 73 seconds after launch, it exploded and all seven astronauts on board died.
The Huffington Post has now obtained new exclusive amateur video from that historic date. The video may be hard to watch, but it shows a unique look at the event and is what some at CNN call the best video of the event they've seen.
Tricia Hunt found the video when she was looking for wedding videos in her aunt and uncle's home, and happened to find the video. She explains on "Early Start" how she found it, and her aunt and uncle's passion for the space program, along with the Huffington Post's Tim Stenovec.
It was too cold to launch, but they did anyway. O rings did not seal below 55 degrees.
It's truly amazing, the stuff we could find if we only bothered to rummage through our old stuff. This is such a great story. Makes me wonder what other people have found while they were searching for their own wedding videography perth.
I disgusted the CNN ancor that it was a touching tribute to smile during this tragic event in our history. Her comments waring the audiance to prepare for what we were about to see was so insincere. What an idiot. Sleep well Ms.
