JUDY RESNIK Black and white publicity photograph of Judy Resnik standing next to a model of a space shuttle. Photograph signed: “Judy Resnik”. B/w, 10×8 overall, image 9½x6¼ (one surface). Official NASA photo. Judy Resnik (1949-1986), the first Jewish astronaut, first flew as a mission specialist on STS 41-D, which launched from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida on August 30, 1984. This was the maiden flight of the orbiter Discovery. During this seven-day mission, the crew successfully activated the OAST-1 solar cell wing experiment, deployed three satellites and operated the CFES-III student crystal growth experiment and the photography experiments using the IMAX motion picture camera. On the morning of January 28, 1986, 72 seconds after liftoff, the second in a series of NASA’s manned orbiting space shuttles exploded. Resnik and six fellow Challenger STS 51-L crew members were killed. In the 25-year history of the NASA Programs, three tragedies have occurred: the first claimed the lives of three astronauts during a launch pad fire; the second, the catastrophe of Challenger – one day after the nineteenth anniversary of Apollo 1; and the third, the explosion of Columbia STS-107 killing all seven astronauts, 16 minutes from home.
