Challenger errors


Jan 5, 2020
Several errors on Challenger. It did not explode and the SRB were not destructed . Watch the video. The hot gas cut a strut. Which caused the SRB to lean. The slip stream then broke off the SRB. The the fuel escaped and mixed and burned. Challenger cabin was whole and crew was alive when it hit the water. No ejection seats. Very much like the NASA cargo Dragon that was lost. Dragon survived but no software to use the parachutes. If a Shuttle could abort, it would have separated and glided to a landing at KSC. Challenger was damaged too bad to do that though. NASA said never again with no escape system. NASA will never use Star Ship for crew since it will not have an escape system(Musk said).
Also the fuel in the SRB contained a lot of rubber.
