Divers working on a documentary about the Bermuda Triangle found a large section of debris believed to be from the belly of the shuttle. Seeing large tiles they immediately thought it might be from Challenger and contacted NASA for confirmation. At this time NASA has not decided what they will do. Leave the debris, or recover it.
I have a lot of vivid memories of that day.

Wow. One of my first historical memories.

Two tasteless space shuttle jokes from that era:

Authorities mistakenly believed they found partial remains of black astronaut Ronald McNair, but it was later determined to be a radiator hose.

Christa McAuliffe was a science teacher, but now she’s history.
