30 YEARS AGO TODAY - SPACE SHUTTLE CHALLENGER DISASTER

Thirty years ago today, the space shuttle Challenger blasted off at 11:38 a.m. ET. Then, 73 seconds after liftoff, a fireball engulfed the shuttle. 


As a horrified America watched on live television, the orbiter broke apart, dooming its crew of seven, including high school teacher Christa McAuliffe, who was supposed to become the first civilian in space. 

The accident, which was eventually blamed on failed rocket O-rings as well as pressure within NASA to keep launches on schedule, forced a reassessment of the shuttle program and the dangers inherent in human spaceflight. 


NASA's has a Day of Remembrance that honors the Challenger victims as well as the lost crews of the Columbia, Apollo 1 and other astronauts killed in the line of duty.

Here are some Space Shuttle Facts from NASA - click HERE.

What do you remember about that day?  

Where were you when you heard the news?

How were you affected?

Speaker Series: Artist, Akram Namdarian (1/30/16)

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley invites you to meet the January 2016 featured artist, Akram Namdarian.
 
 
Namdarian is a local San Fernando Valley artist that works with a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic painting, ceramics and even metals (copper). She has used art as a way to heal herself while battling health issues. Her art stems from an ardent desire to depict a universal human spirit as the constant communicator. Motifs of family, friends, and individuals in dialogue with each other and with the viewer, saturate her work. From her experimental coloring techniques to her wide array of media, she focuses on capturing humankind in its purest form, with all its defects and realism, to find a point of communion, an act of communication that transcends all cultures and is ancient in its birth with humanity. Learn more about Namdarin's work on Saturday, January 30, 2015 from 2pm to 3pm. 

 
PRESENTATION: 2pm - 3pm
