A discussion with a panel of researchers about the legacy of the 1986 space shuttle Challenger disaster and the behind-the-scenes research process involved in the production of the Netflix documentary series Challenger: The Final Flight. Researchers from the film project share their exploratory journey for primary sources at libraries and archives (including our own Frank Mt. Pleasant Library of Special Collections & Archives) and their role in bringing this story to life through the archives. Also includes a Mission Operations Engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory speaking on current robotic space explorations.
