In this Jan. 28, 1986 file photo, the space shuttle Challenger lifts off Pad 39B at Kennedy Space Center. A whole generation -- including McAuliffe's own students -- has grown up since McAuliffe and six other astronauts perished on live TV a quarter century ago. Now the former schoolchildren who loved her are making sure that people who weren't even born then know about McAuliffe and her dream of going into space.
