Even if you’re not the type of person who loves documentaries, astronomy or history as I do, CHALLENGER: THE FINAL FLIGHT, is still a must see 4-part docuseries. Available for your viewing pleasure on Netflix, the docuseries is one of the most engaging, emotionally raw and unfiltered examinations of any historical event that I’ve seen to date, and I’d watch it again. The docuseries brings to life the hope for the future of space exploration that gripped the U.S. at the time, masterfully details the tragedy itself and expertly examines the aftermath of investigation and implications.
