On January 28, 1986, Space Shuttle Challenger roared off the launch pad with six astronauts and Christa McAuliffe-a Concord, New Hampshire, high-school teacher and the first private citizen selected to experience space flight.

Space Shuttle Challenger brakes up 73 seconds after liftoff from Kennedy Space Center.

At the McAuliffe Challenger Learning Center in Framingham, Massachusetts (one of 47 Challenger Learning Centers around the world), mission simulations let students experience the excitement of space exploration.
