This Guy Was Digging Through His Grandparents’ Old Photos. What He Found Is Unforgettable.

This guy was going through his grandparents’ old photos after his grandmother passed away last week. It was then that he made an interesting, yet tragic, photographic discovery.

His grandfather worked for NASA as a contractor and he was able to see just about every space shuttle launch.

Well, there was one launch in 1986 that no one will ever forget. Called the Challenger, with 7 people on board, the space shuttle exploded 73 seconds into launch. In these amazing photos, his grandfather photographed it all. The photos speak for themselves:

The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on January 28, 1986, when Space Shuttle Challenger (mission STS-51-L) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members. The spacecraft disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of central Florida at 11:38 EST

You can read everything about this disaster on Wikipedia if you are interested.

It’s a tragedy many of us witnessed and will never forget.Share these unforgettable photos with others.

  1. I’m having some issues hooking up my speakers in my 1986 ford ranger XLT to my new stereo, where can I find the radio diagram? Or does anyone know the color of wire for left speaker, and right speaker?

  2. I run a small gaming news and reviews site (www.gamershideout.co.uk) and always submit my articles on N4G and reddit. I was wondering what other types of sites accept things specifically for gaming? Even if they are smaller sites we need full exposure and are willing to try any website that seems useful.

  3. hey all redditors, is this true?
    this guy and I are having an argument over this.
    Give me a good argument to use over this please?
    I would assume since Reddit is founded earlier, it would be the one supplying tumblr with material.
    thanks guys:D

  4. I have recently found the miracle of a site they call reddit. I have not been using it for too long but I am truly in love with this site. My only concern as it does give away stories and pics from links to other sites, are some of these viruses? I am concerned to look at some stories because I am concerned that I will get some malware or something. Thanks.

  5. thanks!!
    I really don’t want to go to the sites and figure it out. So please be specific
    and explain why a person would use these two sites. thanks!!

  6. on reddit when it says fill in a url what do i put in if i don’t have a url

  7. I personally think that reddit is awesome and 9gag is 9000 people gagging on reddit reposts.

  8. Hi friends, today i am going to log in my reddit account, but it pops up an Error “Amazon is currently having an issue with theri storage network, please stand by.” …i am just a newbie on Internet, so i want to ask a stupid question what happened on reddit, why it is down today? And what relationship between reddit & Amazon?????

    The more details, the better, thanks in advance!

  9. Is it just like a forum or something? I’ve seen a couple threads from there. How is it different from other forums?
    Um… okay, so what exactly is “social bookmarking”?

  10. haha. so i like 9Gag better because i think the website looks a little “neater” well that’s my opinion. but Reddit is cool too…can you be a Redditor at the same time while liking 9Gag? lol

  11. It seems to be a site where you publicly point out articles that are posted elsewhere on the internet because you think that the article is interesting. Is that about right?
    @Hunter: hey I didn’t name it, but that would make more sense if that is the premise of the website

  12. I can’t figure out how to get to my reddit account’s frontpage. Clicking on my username doesn’t bring me to my list of subreddits that I’ve added to my frontpage and the FAQ doesn’t have anything. How do I see my added list of subreddits?

  13. thanks!!

  14. Alright, so I just started going on Reddit. I understand pretty much everything except karma and Reddit Gold. What does karma do exactly? And how do you get it? Same question goes for Reddit Gold. Sorry for the p’s.

  15. I have a friend who gets all her “news” from Reddit. I understand that Reddit is social news, whatever that is… But all of the stories on this site are not necessarily verified or written by journalists, are they? Can this site be considered a legitimate news source? She has come up with some whacky things that she read on there. Thanks.

  16. I’ve now that i go to submit link, i think. But what does URL mean? And how exactly do i make the post? Lets’s say i made a comic thingy, and saved it to my pictures. How do i upload that to reddit? I have an account, but please! A step by step answer that will clarify about URL as well!!!!

  17. All I understand is that they hate each other. Also, rank them by website traffic and in order of what you think is best. Thanks!

  18. My friend made me sign up for reddit today, and I have NO idea how to use it. I can’t figure out how to post things or put articles in certain categories or really anything else. Help?
    @Lwam… Okay, so I have a few more questions:
    1) How do I send questions to people on reddit?
    2) How do I make a subreddit?
    3) How do I post something?
    I would send this to you using reddit, but I don’t know how.

  19. When I try to log on to Reddit, it says my password is invalid. I have to reset it every time. I use Google Chrome. Reddit only does this on my pc, if I open incognito I can log in perfectly fine. Any suggestions?
    @Raphael, nice puns :’)
    @Jacob, works fine now, thanks!

  22. Hey can any one tell me that link submission in Reddit.com gives us “dofollow” or “nofollow” links?? In the source code of Reddit I found the tag rel=”nofollow” after my link URL. So just confused.. Please help guys….

  24. This is such a longshot– just hoping someone might know about this! I was in Cambridge (or possibly Boston, but I believe it was Cambridge) in 1986 visiting my mother, and she took me to a play, which she described as an avante-garde interpretation of a classic ( I cannot remember which one, it really could have been anything). I remember that the play consisted of a number of people dressed all in white. All the women had their hair tied back, and so did all the men, so it was hard to differentiate them. The play was by Peter Sellars. The actors walked back and forth, occasionally falling down, or saying disconnected phrases such as “wind”. At one point, I remember them all falling in a pile. It was a rather mind numbing experience, but my children do not believe such a play exists, and it would be so lovely if anyone happened to attend the same play, or know of it! Thanks for reading, or hopefully, enduring the play!

  29. I know very little about this matter but I have been reading rage comics for about a month and I’ve heard a lot of reddit references. Can you explain what both sites are? Also my brother said something about 9gag stealing from reddit but I’ve also saw something about how reddit steals from 9gag. Im seriously confused. Can you explain it to me?

  30. I saw my child on Reddit and saw these subreddits are these safe will they track and will I have to pay?

  31. Hello,

    Um… okay, so what exactly is “social bookmarking”?

  44. Just want to get more viewers for my site and i think reddit already blocked some of my post. So can anyone give me a better alternative to reddit? something that you dont need followers just to get your links showed.

  49. I have had an account on reddit for a year now but never really got the concept and how to use it someone please explain, IN DETAIL.

  50. I’d heard of it and then just read a story about it. I went to the site and it looks like a bunch of jumbled up mess. I was wondering if anyone has ever used the site and what’s your opinion of it? Is it worth joining?

  52. it’s a really confusing site to me. it’s really disorganized and i dont really understand what’s going on. i’ve been going on alot, but i dont really know what i’m doing. can someone just give me a good overview?

  53. What are some major events in 1986? Can be anything, history, music, celebrities etc.

  54. Alright, so I just started going on Reddit. I understand pretty much everything except karma and Reddit Gold. What does karma do exactly? And how do you get it? Same question goes for Reddit Gold. Sorry for the p’s.
