The Framingham State University Digital Commons Repository recently made available a collection of images, ephemera, and documents related to the Challenger STS-51L mission and January 28, 1986 disaster available.
A research guide has been created to highlight and provide context to the collection. In addition to items from the collection the research guide includes additional primary and secondary sources. The guide was created for students, educators, or anyone interested in learning more about the Challenger STS-51L mission and disaster, the Teacher in Space Program, or Christa McAuliffe.
