The Dream that Fell Out of the Sky
It was the most complex machine ever built, an engineering triumph which was supposed to make space travel routine. But on 28 January this year, less than two minutes after the start of its 26th mission, the space shuttle Challenger blew up in mid-air and stopped America's manned exploration of space in its tracks.
Tonight, with the help of senior NASA officials and engineers, Robert Harris reconstructs the alarming series of mistakes which led to the loss of Challenger and her crew.
As NASA comes to terms with the worst scandal in its history, Panorama looks back at the shuttle's accident-prone past and assesses its uncertain future.
