The crew of STS-51-L prepares to board the ill-fated Challenger shuttle

Medium shot of two open doors. A woman wearing a white jumpsuit and holding a walkie-talkie walks through first. A crowd of spectators can be seen behind her applauding the astronauts that are about to walk out. Shortly after the woman in white walks through the doors, Commander Dick Scobee follows her, along with Judy Resnik and Ronald McNair. Following them is pilot Michael J. Smith, Christa McAuliffe, Ellison Onizuka, and Greg Jarvis. Some men in suits follow them, as well as one man in a flight jumpsuit. All the astronauts are wearing blue NASA jumpsuits. The camera pans with the last members of the crew as they walk over to a silver NASA bus with red, white, and blue stripes painted on it. The shot ends a moment after Jarvis enters the bus.
