On a chilly January morning 24 years ago, Corydon optometrist Jack Moss
raised his new video camera to the sky over central Florida and
captured one of the darkest moments in American space exploration – the
explosion of the shuttle Challenger.
In the videotape, a stream of white smoke behind the climbing shuttle
shoots into view – but Moss, his wife and a neighbor noticed
immediately that something was amiss when the channel separated into two streams.
“That’s trouble of some kind,” Moss can be heard saying. “That didn’t look right.”
