Challenger Shuttle Missions

24 good flights

Fun Facts

The Challenger was first called STA-099 and it was built as a test vehicle . The challenger sent off 5 missions Curiosity/ Mars Science Lab, International Space Station, Hubble, Cassini, and Kepler. Sadly the Challengers last flight blew up by an oil shortage.

The Oil Shortage

The oil shortage started from a leak. The leak got all over the space shuttle and before anyone could stop it, she was in the air! All the fire coming out of the back caught onto the oil on the shuttle and she blew up out of nowhere.
