She also worked as a Public Information Officer for NASA and delivered the pre-launch commentary for the ill-fated space shuttle Challenger the day it exploded over Florida’s coast. She subsequently worked with the President’s Commission on the ensuing investigation with astronaut Bob Crippen and others, authoring the definitive report detailing the investigation’s chronology, which was included in the final report to President Reagan.
