Challenger: The Final Flight (2020) – A Quick Capsule TV Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The latest Netflix Original TV show, Challenger: The Final Flight is a limited docuseries revolving around the tragic 1986 incident involving NASA’s Space Shuttle Challenge, one of the most iconic and memorable moments of the 80’s.   In this 4 part series directors Steven Leckart and Daniel Junge don’t rush to uncover any new information about the lead-up to or aftermath of this tragic event, but instead just deliver the full rounded story in an interesting and compelling way.  A combination of archive materials, news footage and new interviews… there’s a lot to unpack and it’s well worth the time investment to dive in.
