Plot Synopsis

Featuring archival footage and photographs along with first-person interviews, each one-hour episode of DAYS THAT SHAPED AMERICA chronicles a different memorable day in the history of the United States. On Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, the History channel premiered "Challenger Disaster," but the cable channel had no other episodes scheduled at that time. One of the most tragic and shocking images ever broadcast to the American people, the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion left the country in mourning. The loss of seven astronauts became more heartbreaking as people learned that the incident could have been avoided if protocols had been different. Hear the emotional recollections of the Challenger commander's wife, two astronauts who were involved in the launch preparation, an engineer for the rocket boosters that failed, and a reporter who thought this would be a routine workday, as they relive the controversial moments that lead to the most notorious day in NASA's history.
