STS-51F launch, abort & landing (7-29-85)


1985: STS-51F Challenger (NASA)

The mission was interesting from several points of view. During launch, Challenger had to perform Abort to Orbit (ATO) emergency procedure, which means that the intended orbit could not be reached, but the shuttle could stay on a lower, stable orbit. Despite the ATO, rest of the mission went well. One of the experiments conducted on board was preparation of Coca-Cola and Pepsi in space.
