More than 25 years after the space shuttle Challenger exploded shortly after liftoff, an amateur video of the accident has surfaced.
The newly released video, taken by Jeffrey Ault, and licensed from Ault by the Huffington Post, offers a closer and more intimate view of the tragedy than have other video reports previously released by the news media. Ault was part of a live audience gathered to watch the Challenger take off from the Kennedy Space Center, less than 10 miles from the launch site. He shot the video on his Super 8 home video camera, and it sat for 26 years in a box in his house.

it's scary to know as soon as it went, that those people died instantly.

Interesting (for me) to hear the Italians speaking - and no, they didn't realize until almost the end of the video the Shuttle was lost.
There's another video that turned up a few years back - a amateur video surfacing much as this one. I'll see if I can find it.

Some remember this occurring in 1986. Others remember this occurring in 1983. Who here remembers it occuring in '86, and who remembers it occurring in '83?
