Christa McAuliffe was NASA’s first designated teacher in space. She had prepared lessons to record during her time aboard the space shuttle Challenger. But she never had the chance to carry out her plan. On January 28, 1986, just 73 seconds into its flight, the ship exploded. It killed McAuliffe and six other crew members on board.
Joe Acaba and Ricky Arnold are two teachers-turned-astronauts. They will pay tribute to McAuliffe and her work. They plan to record these “lost lessons” while on the International Space Station. They plan to do this over the next several months. That's according to Marcia Dunn reporting for Associated Press.
