Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, 73 Seconds is a temporary exhibit installed in the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. The exhibit focuses on the positive outcomes of the event by educating guests about the disaster, breaking down key factors that contributed to the event, and showing progress that has occurred as a result of the catastrophe. The information is broken down into 73 "seconds" or segments, a reference to the duration of the ill-fated voyage. The exhibit concludes with a tribute to the Challenger’s crew and a moment of appreciation for those who take on space exploration.
Student project at the Savannah College of Art & Design. Based on "An Oral History of the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster" by Margaret Lazarus Dean. Project developed entirely by designer from concept to creation.
