The Nation

April 07, 1986

A salvage vessel returned to port bearing a large, jagged piece of the shuttle Challenger's right wing and a chunk of the ship's fuselage emblazoned with an intact American flag. Technicians at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida sifted through debris recovered by a scallop boat called the Big Foot from the crash site of Challenger's crew cabin but it was not known if any remains of crew members were found. The Big Foot tied up at a Navy submarine dock late Saturday night and unloaded enough crates and apparent debris to fill a flatbed truck. An ambulance met the ship but it was not thought that anything was placed inside.
