1. Space Shuttle Challenger
Houston, we got a problem! What could be more disturbing than to see joyful folks heading for their death?
Seven astronauts lost their lives when Space Shuttle Challenger blew up 73 seconds after take-off, in what was one of the biggest tragedies of the last century.
You might not know them by their names, but the brave men and women that perished on January 28th, 1986 entered the history books as heroes.
It’s hard to say how shocking it was for them when the red lights turned on. We will only mention the fact that some members of the crew survived the initial blast and died because they crashed on the ocean’s surface.

The next photo is heartbreaking, even for those that are not fans of the genre.
