Red Carpet: The Challenger Disaster

Saturday, November 16, 2013

A couple of nights ago, I attended the red carpet premiere of The Challenger Disaster, that will air on the Science Channel and the Discovery Channel tonight 9-11PM EST. It tells the story of Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr. Richard Feynman, and his role on the Presidential Commission that worked to determine the cause of The Challenger explosion on January 28th, 1986. For those who don't know, it stunned the nation as the space shuttle exploded just 73 seconds into its 10th mission carrying 7 crew members.

I wasn't born yet, so I wasn't around when it happened. However, it's still a shocking tragedy what happened. It's extraordinary to hear about how this professor, along with other colleagues, investigate to find the truth to what happened. The movie is eye-opening, captivating, and moving. I would definitely recommend seeing it.

On the red carpet, many of the stars of The Challenger Disaster, in addition to other celebrities were present. Actor William Hurt, Peter Facinelli (you may recognize him from Twilight), TV personality Kelly Bensimon, Actress Kelly Rutherford, Mythbusters star Grant Imahara, Oddities stars Evan Michelson, Mike Zohn, Ryan Matthew, Director James Hawes, and President & CEO of Discovery Communications David Zaslav were in attendance. Read on to see some more photos!
