Power point presentation #1 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - Sinking of the Titanic – 1912 and contains 37 slides.

The luxury steamship RMS Titanic met its catastrophic end in the North Atlantic, sinking 2 miles to the ocean floor after sideswiping an iceberg during its maiden voyage. Rather than the intended Port of New York, a deep-sea grave became the pride of the White Star Line’s final destination in the early hours of April 15, 1912. More than 1,500 people lost their lives in the disaster.

In the decades since her demise, Titanic has inspired countless books and several notable films while continuing to make headlines, particularly since the 1985 discovery of her resting place off the coast of Newfoundland. At least 5 separate boards of inquiry on both sides of the Atlantic conducted comprehensive hearings on Titanic’s sinking, interviewing dozens of witnesses many maritime experts.

There was widespread disbelief that the ship could possibly have sunk, and, due to the era’s slow and unreliable means of communication, misinformation abounded. Newspapers initially reported that the ship had collided with an iceberg but remained afloat and was being towed to port with everyone on board.
.
Titanic’s demise has taken on a deeper, almost mythic, meaning in popular culture. Many view the tragedy as a morality play about the dangers of human pride: Titanic’s creators believed they had built an “unsinkable” ship that could not be defeated by the laws of nature.

Power point presentation #2 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - The Hindenburg Disaster – 1937 and contains 12 slides.

Following World War I, in 1925, the Allies permitted Germany to resume construction of long-range rigid dirigibles for their own use. The Hindenburg was the was a crowning achievement of its age. Never before or since has a larger aircraft taken flight.

While attempting to land in New Jersey and soon after the mooring lines were set, some eyewitnesses reported a blue glow on top of the Hindenburg followed by a flame towards the tail section of the craft. The flame was almost simultaneously succeeded by an explosion that quickly engulfed the craft causing it to crash into the ground killing 36 people. Spectators watched in horror as passengers and crew were burned alive or jumped to their deaths.

Power point presentation #3 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster – 1986 and contains 14 slides.

On January 28, 1986, the American shuttle orbiter Challenger broke up 73 seconds after liftoff, bringing a devastating end to the spacecraft’s 10th mission. The disaster claimed the lives of all 7 astronauts aboard, including Christa McAuliffe, a teacher from NH who had been selected to join the mission and teach lessons from space to schoolchildren around the country. The tragedy and its aftermath received extensive media coverage and prompted NASA to temporarily suspend all shuttle missions.

It was later determined that 2 rubber O-rings, which had been designed to separate the sections of the rocket booster, had failed due to cold temperatures on the morning of the launch. After the accident, NASA refrained from sending astronauts into space for more than 2 years as it redesigned a number of the shuttle’s features.

Flights began again in September 1988 with the successful launching of Discovery. Since that time, the space shuttle has carried out numerous important missions, including the repair and maintenance of the Hubble Space Telescope and the construction of the International Space Station.

On February 1, 2003, a 2nd space shuttle disaster rocked the United States when Columbia disintegrated upon reentry, killing all aboard. While missions resumed in July 2005, the space shuttle retired in 2011.

Power point presentation #4 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - Space Shuttle Columbia Disaster – 2003 and contains 13 slides.

On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia broke apart while re-entering the atmosphere over TX, killing all 7 crew members on board. The disaster occurred minutes before Columbia was scheduled to land at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.

An investigation later determined the catastrophe was caused by a problem that took place shortly after launch on January 16, when a piece of foam insulation broke off from the shuttle’s propellant tank and damaged the edge of the shuttle’s left wing.

In the aftermath of the Columbia disaster, the space shuttle program was grounded until July 26, 2005, when the space shuttle Discovery was launched on the program’s 114th mission. In July 2011, the space shuttle program, which began with the Columbia’s first mission in 1981, completed its final (and 135th) mission, flown by Atlantis.
