This is a special report from CHANNEL 4 NEWS. Good morning I’m Kent Shocknek

Coming up on the one-minute point in our countdown. T-minus one minute and counting. Sound supression water system new armed. The hydrogen burn igniters have been armed. These igniters will fire at T-minus 10 seconds to burn off any residual hydrogen gas. T-minus 45 seconds and counting. The solid rocket booster flight instrumentation recorders have gone into the record mode. Coming upon the 30-second point in our countdown.

[Launch Control Technician:]
We have a go for auto sequence start.

[Hugh Harris (Launch Control Spokesman):]
And we’ve had a go for auto sequence start. The SRB hydraulic power units have started. T-minus 21 seconds and the solid rocket booster engine gimbal now under way. T-minus 15 seconds

The voice of launch control of Hugh Harris of NASA.

T-minus 10 seconds, GLS (ground launch sequencer) go for main engine start.

[Hugh Harris (Launch Control Spokesman):]
… 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, we have main engine start, 4, 3, 2, 1 and liftoff! Liftoff of the 25th space shuttle mission, and it has cleared the tower. Liftoff of the 25th space shuttle mission, and it has cleared the tower.

[Francis “Dick” Scobee (Challenger Commander):]
Houston, Challenger. Roll program.

[Richard Covey (Spacecraft Communicator):]
Roger roll, Challenger.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
Good roll program confirmed. Challenger now heading downrange.

[Reporter:]
It spiraled away from head 39-B, the first use of head 39-B since the old Apollo days and the Skylight missions. It’s chilly in Florida. Icicles formed over night on the PAD, NASA enginerrs were concerned they might of broken off during the launch and effected the fragile projection tiles. Protect the shuttle on its way back in during re-entry.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
Engines beginning throttling down now at 94 percent. Normal throttle (setting) for most of the flight is 104 percent. We’II throttle down to 65 percent shortly.

[Reporter:]
Don’t know what the effect might just be just yet, the astronauts will take a look during the mission.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
Good roll program confirmed. Challenger now heading downrange. Engines are at 65 percent. Three engines running normally. Three good fuel cells. Three good APUs (auxilliary power units).

[Reporter:]
APU’s are the auxilliary power units.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):] Engines are at 65 percent. Three engines running normally. Three good fuel cells. Three good APUs (auxilliary power units).

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
Velocity 2,257 feet per second (1,539 mph), altitude 4.3 nautical miles, downrange distance 3 nautical miles. Engines are throttling up. Three engines now at 104 percent.

[Reporter:]
It’s always amazing to hear how quickly the Shuttle moves. It’s already more than 4 miles down wind as we listen.

[Richard Covey (Spacecraft Communicator):]
Challenger, go at throttle up.

[Reporter:]
This Shuttle Mission will launch – my god. There’s been an explosion.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
One minute 15 seconds. Velocity 2,900 feet per second (1,977 mph). Altitude 9 nautical miles. Downrange distance 7 nautical miles.

[Reporter:]
This is not standard, this is not something that is planned of course. I can see a sold rocket booster has broken away from Shuttle Challenger, that’s what you’re looking at in the middle of your screen. I can not see the Shuttle itself. I don’t know if it’s able to continue on one rocket booster. If it’s able to jet and that rocket booster is able to return the Kennedy Space Centre, perhaps, the Shuttle engines are not enough power the shuttle back down and they would have to shut it down.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
Flight controllers here are looking very carefully at the situation. Obviously a major malfunction.

[Reporter:]
I hope they were able to survive. I hope the astronauts are alive.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
We have no downlink (of radio voice or data from Challenger).

[Reporter:]
We have absolutely no sign at all of the Shuttle itself, all we saw was that one explosion only about a minute into the flight and we saw the solid rocket booster, now here is something coming down – I don’t know what that is. I don’t think that’s the Shuttle, I believe that’s a piece of debris that is coming back earthbound. I don’t know. It’s too small for the Shuttle itself. Pieces falling out of the sky in the Florida morning it’s about twenty till noon in Florida. There are contingency plans for the Shuttle when something does go wrong, when something goes terribly wrong.

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
We have a report from the flight dynamics officer that the vehicle has exploded. The flight director confirms that. We are looking at checking with the recovery forces to see what can be done at this point.

[Reporter:]
8:40 and we hear from Launch Control, the vehicle has exploded that’s the orbitor itself, The Shuttle Challenger has exploded. We must –

[Steven Nesbitt (Mission Control Spokesman):]
Contingency procedures are in effect.

[Reporter:]
– assume that the crew is not alive. This is unheralded in history history of the space program, ladies and gentlemen I have covered the Space Shuttles Launches since the very first launch, since before the first launch itself, going way back and nothing like this has every happened of course there was the Apollo fire on the ground at the Kennedy Space Center, the Apollo-One fire that killed three astronauts during a test run back in the 60’s, but the Shuttle Program itself till this time has been untouched by any human problem.
