The space shuttle Challenger was NASA's second orbiter to be put into service. Its maiden flight was on April 4, 1983, and it completed nine missions. Its final flight took place on Jan. 28, 1986, and resulted in the death of all seven crew members. The accident led to a two-and-a-half year grounding of the shuttle fleet, with missions resuming in 1988.
