Space shuttle Challenger: Debris found by divers

Divers looking for World War Two aircraft wreckage off Florida have found debris from the 1986 Challenger space shuttle disaster.

Newly-released footage filmed in May 2022 shows the moment it was discovered.

Challenger broke apart shortly after take-off. All seven people on board lost their lives.

Bill Nelson, Nasa administrator, said: “This discovery gives us an opportunity to pause once again, to uplift the legacies of the seven pioneers we lost, and to reflect on how this tragedy changed us.”
