    Weird Are the crew members of 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger still alive?

    I love conspiracy theories...

    31 years after the Challenger disaster, are the crew members of 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger still alive?


    If you’re age 40 years or older, you’d probably remember January 28, 1986.That was day of the Challenger disaster, when the NASA Space Shuttle orbiter Challenger broke apart 73 seconds into its flight over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida at 11:38 EST.
    All seven crew members were killed, including five NASA astronauts and two payload specialists.

    Millions of Americans (17% of the total population) watched the launch live on TV because of Payload Specialist Christa McAuliffe, the first teacher in space.
    Media coverage of the explosion was extensive: one study reported that 85% of Americans surveyed had heard the news within an hour of the accident.

    We were told that Challenger disintegrated because of a malfunctioning O-ring seal in its right solid rocket booster.
    The O-ring failure caused a breach in the SRB joint it sealed, allowing pressurized burning gas from within the solid rocket motor to reach the outside and impinge upon the adjacent SRB aft field joint attachment hardware and external fuel tank, leading to the structural failure of the external tank.
    Aerodynamic forces broke up the orbiter.
    The crew compartment and many other vehicle fragments were eventually recovered from the ocean floor after a lengthy search and recovery operation.

    The exact timing of the death of the crew is unknown; several crew members are known to have survived the initial breakup of the spacecraft.
    But the shuttle had no escape system, and the impact of the crew compartment with the ocean surface was too violent to be survivable.

    What do they gain from blowing up in the space shuttle crash?

    Why would they need to fake it?

    I agree , however what if they were a cover story and never on the shuttle. The real misson objective was to launch some star wars stuff that regan spoke about in the 80's.

    They were always to be in a studio and then re appear once the shuttle landed ? Shuttle never landed so what becomes of the astronauts?

    I don't believe the above but would make an interesting thought.

    Thanks to mitchb

    What do they gain ?? Perhaps nothing we know of or understand. But I believe one thing with a passion.

    WE ARE NOT told the truth about almost EVERTHING.
    If it is ISIS, Syria, Moon Landings, 9/11, Korea, Rothschilds, NWO, ilscuro, fuck it anything, why believe what we are spoon fed or told.

    Question everything. I might come across as a paranoid cunt but to be fair I probably am. ( I just wrote a hell of a lot and then deleted it all )

    Semi pointless rant over that I deleted most of anyway.....

    Thanks to piggzy
