After the success of landing a man on the Moon, meeting JFK's challenge, NASA confronted the near disaster of Apollo 13, which was avoided by human intelligence and ingenuity. After four more successful lunar landings, NASA re-engineered the program. The STS Shuttle was used in the construction of the International Space Station, but disaster struck when Challenger exploded, killing the crew, including teacher Christa McAuliffe. A redesigned shuttle, Columbia, began new missions and placed the Hubble Telescope in orbit. After 22 years of service, Columbia, STS-107, disintegrated during re-entry, killing seven crew members. Despite this, NASA recovered with STS-114, Discovery, for a return to flight.
