Factual drama exploring the truth behind the space shuttle Challenger's 1986 explosion.

I'm quite interested in space exploration, astronomy and so forth. In the past I've seen various documentaries and dramatisations regarding the shuttle disaster but never from the POV of the commission and the roles played by those on it. Whilst it doesn't go into details of the failings at NASA and the shuttle contractors (which in my mind should have led to criminal charges) it is an enjoyable docu-drama for those who find these sorts of things interesting.

No special effects, no big whoosy explosions and stock footage of the shuttle explosion is used. It did provide me with some information that I wasn't aware of before... mainly that the crew, or some of them were still alive as the remains of the shuttle fell into the ocean.
