  • Cost Share Rollout, 8/24 Not for distribution The History of Challenger Center for Space Science Education On January 28, 1986, the seven crew members of the space shuttle Challenger set out on a mission to broaden educational horizons and promote the advance of scientific knowledge. In the aftermath of the Challenger accident, the crew’s families came together, still grieving from loss, but firmly committed to the belief that they must carry on the spirit of their loved ones by continuing the Challenger crew’s educational mission. The organization had modest beginnings. June Scobee Rodgers, wife of Shuttle Commander Dick Scobee, gathered the families of the other Challenger astronauts around her living room coffee table. They were clear on one thing: no brick or mortar monument for these astronauts. In Silver Linings, Dr. Rodgers’ memoir of the Challenger accident and its aftermath, she wrote, "The world knew that seven Challenger astronauts died, but they were more than astronauts. They were our families and friends. The world knew how they died; we wanted the world to know how they lived and for what they were willing to risk their lives. So, you see, we couldn't let them die in vain. Their mission became our mission." The family members resolved to create a living memorial to the Challenger crew—the world’s first interactive space science education center where teachers and their students could use state-of-the-art technology and space-life simulators to explore space themselves. In tribute to the astronauts’ courage and vision, Challenger Center for Space Science Education was founded and incorporated on April 24, 1986. In an interview conducted shortly after the organization’s founding, Dr. Rodgers said, "We just couldn’t let the words ‘Challenger’ or ‘space’ mean something sad for children. So the idea of a living tribute to carry on the educational mission of the crew developed into Challenger Center. This tribute would utilize the excitement of space to inspire and motivate our nation’s schoolchildren to take interest in mathematics, science, and technology." Cheryl McNair, widow of Challenger’s Mission Specialist, Ronald McNair, said, "It was good to be able to focus on something positive and know that something good could come from the tragedy." Jane Smith Wolcott, whose husband Mike Smith piloted the shuttle, agreed: “We did this for ourselves, and for the children. It really seemed the only way to remember them. The space program is very vital to this country. I would want kids to think of Mike in many ways as a role model. He felt the space frontier was our future.”

It is just as important for you to be comfortable with technology and science as a citizen in our country because of the many new ways it be a part of our lives. The Iowa Space Grant Consortium is also a part of Marsville helping young people learn about space and the many opportunities there will be to explore space in your future. You might be the first families to vacation on the Moon instead of at Disneyworld.
