On January 28, 1986 the Challenger Space Shuttle broke apart 73 seconds after launch. Its seven crew members died in a spectacular explosion witnessed on live television by the whole world. Up until that moment, the US space program had captured the hearts and imaginations of all Americans. After the Challenger disaster, many wondered if space exploration was even something people should attempt. Using facts, original and secondary sources, fusing student writing, improvisation, dance and drama, an ensemble of students at CWU will devise a wholly new piece of theatre exploring the Challenger disaster, its causes and its aftermath.
