All US Space Disasters Happen This Week

by bitznbitez

In what can only be described as surreal, I observed that all three fatal space accidents happened this week for the US.

  • Jan 27 — Apollo I accident
  • Jan 28 — Challenger disaster
  • Feb 01 — Columbia disaster

What is it about this 7 day stretch that makes spaceflight more hazardous than at any other time ?
