Trivia

When the Challenger shuttle, which had history teacher Christa McAuliffe on board, exploded the executives at NBC knew a lot of children would be devastated by her loss as the shuttle launch was shown in many schools. A script was immediately written in which the character of Punky had to come to terms with what the shuttle explosion meant. See more »

Quotes

Allen Anderson: Mike, are they going to stop the space program?
Mike Fulton: I don't think so.
Allen Anderson: My dad says they should, he says they shouldn't send people into space anymore.
Mike Fulton: Well that's an understandable first reaction, Allen, but I think most people will realize how important it is for us to keep exploring space.
Margaux Kramer: Maybe, but the next time they decide to send a teacher up, I don't know if that person will want to go.
Mike Fulton: I would, if they asked me I would go in a second.
