Are the Crew Members of 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger Still Alive? No.

challengerThe following conspiracy theory was brought to our attention by Adam Pittman, and we thank him for doing so.

“In 1986, the crew of the Challenger was supposedly killed when their shuttle exploded. Recently, people that looked identical to the crew have been found to still be alive. Not only do they look identical, but a they either have the exact same name, or are said to be the identical twin of the crew member that was killed. Richard Scobee even has a facebook page and is CEO of Cows in Trees. If you could check into his schooling that is listed on his Facebook perhaps call the school and see if they indeed had him as a student etc. His high school and college are listed on his Facebook. Thanks”

The modified group photo of the astronauts shown has been making the rounds on social media with increasing frequency of late.

We tried. We dug. We find no credible evidence to support this particular conspiracy theory, and a fair amount against it.

Further, we at SDHoS are deeply offended that such a conspiracy theory was even concocted, as it throws a shadow on the honor of men and women who sacrificed their lives while trying to improve the human condition through exploration of space.

First, conspiracies do exist, but they all share one common trait: They exist to benefit the goals and desires of the conspirators.

What possible benefit would a conspiracy such as this one confer upon NASA and any other involved parties? None. Actually, quite the opposite. If the goal were to give NASA access to additional funding (Dollars are almost always at the root of conspiracies), this would have the opposite effect. Showing the American public an obvious failure of a multi-billion dollar project is not the way to get lawmakers to allocate a bigger chunk of the national budget. No benefit = no reason for a conspiracy.

Second, if such a conspiracy were to exist, and do what has been alleged, is it in any way logical that the ‘still living’ astronauts would be cleverly concealed with any of their original names intact? (Think ‘Witness Protection Program’) This little flaw in the theory is shared by many faux conspiracy theories. It’s alleged that a clandestine group devises ingenious methods to pull off some hoax, then makes easily avoidable and obvious mistakes that botch the whole plan. Two words: Highly improbable.

On these two points alone, the probability of this conspiracy theory having any validity diminishes to near-zero.

But let’s look at the alleged photographic ‘evidence’ in support of the claim. First, what’s with the ‘?’ next to Gregory Jarvis in the group photo above? NASA only chose to replace 6 of the 7? They wouldn’t have ignored him in their nefarious (yet nonexistent) conspiracy! He was the payload specialist!


  • ChristaMcAuliffe_comparedSharon Christa McAuliffe (deceased) and Sharon A. McAuliffe are alleged to be the same person.

Other than having dark hair, we find differences in facial structure, even taking the aging process into account. As evidence, we are unconvinced. It’s unfortunate that there are no clear photographs of the ears of each, as differing ear structure comparisons can be used to distinguish photographs of people regardless of age.

Further, During the same time period, Christa McAuliffe was continuing her education with Bowie State University, Maryland and Framingham State College in Massachusetts, while teaching at Concord High School in New Hampshire, Sharon McAuliffe was studying at Syracuse University and holding down a job at a Syracuse accounting firm.

It would be difficult, if not impossible, for one person to be in different places, doing different things, during the same time period.

Logic would tend to imply that these are not the same individual.

  • Commander Francis Richard Scobee (deceased) and Richard Scobee are alleged to be the same person.RichardScobee_compared_01

Remember the comment about ear structure? These two photographs are NOT the same person. Besides the ears, there are other facial differences that one would need to WANT to see them as the same person to ignore.

Selected for NASA Astronaut Corps in January 1978, Scobee completed his training in August 1979. While awaiting his first orbital spaceflight mission, he served as an instructor pilot for the Shuttle’s 747 carrier aircraft. In April 1984, he piloted Challenger mission STS-41-C, which successfully deployed one satellite and repaired another.

Francis Richard Scobee, the astronaut, was training to be an astronaut and acting as an instructor pilot for the shuttle’s 747 carrier aircraft while Richard Scobee, the alleged doppelganger, was employed, full-time, at The Marketing Edge, Inc. in Chicago (.

Busy guy, don’t you think? Again, almost impossible for one person to fill both these roles simultaneously.

We have no option but to conclude that these were, indeed, two separate men; one, sadly deceased, the other, alive and well and currently CEO of Cows in Trees.


  • Ronald McNair (deceased) is alleged to be alive and well in the person of his brother, Carl McNair.

Hm. So, the astronaut bears some resemblance to a very close family member. Nope, that doesn’t really do it for us as far as evidence goes.

Additionally, the life of Carl McNair is well documented before, during and after the Challenger disaster. Are we to believe that a swap was made, and then the original Carl McNair was somehow ‘disappeared’?

This defies even the most rudimentary logic. Wouldn’t it have been easier and simpler for NASA to just get rid of Ronald instead?

Once again, we are compelled to call ‘shenanigans’.

  • Judith Arlene Resnik, Ph.D. (deceased) and Judith Resnik are alleged to be the same person.JudithResnik_compared

Do we need to discuss the photos? These two images are NOT the same person, unless basic skull structure changes with age now. (It doesn’t)

Consider that while Judith Resnik, Ph.D., was engaged in work and study at RCA, NIH, Xerox, and NASA, Judith Resnik the lawyer was teaching law school classes at Yale and USC.

If this were the same person, she’d have to have been as busy as Commander Scobee.

Again, the conspiracy narrative only works if we ignore the photographs and life history of both of these people.


  • onyzuka_compared_01Ellison Onizuka (deceased) is alleged to be alive and well in the person of his brother, Claude Onizuka.

Seriously? Another ‘replaced his brother, then the brother was disappeared assertion’?

Now they’re not even trying.

Same issues as with the McNair brothers.

The lives of both brothers are documented, and they overlap. Both are known to have existed. CONCURRENTLY!

IT seems that this is yet another piece of ‘evidence’ that we are forced to consider non-evidence.


  • Michael J. Smith (CAPTAIN, USN) NASA ASTRONAUT (DECEASED) and Michael J. Smith (University of Wisconsin-Madison) are alleged to be the same person.

While the nose may appear to be similar, oh my, there’s those darned ears again. The disappearing mild brow ridge is another giveaway. These are not photographs of the same person.

OK, let’s look at the timelines. Michael J. Smith (University of Wisconsin-Madison) was the Chairperson, Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison from July 1, 1988 to June 30, 1998. Hm. Two years after the Challenger disaster. Wow, maybe…

Nope. Michael Smith is the Robert Ratner Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering.  He has an affiliate appointment in the department of Population Health.  Professor Smith has been at UW-Madison since 1984.  He has also taught as an adjunct faculty member at Xavier University in Cincinnati and at the University of Cincinnati.  He served as a research program director at the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health from 1974-1984 where he directed a research program on human factors, ergonomics, and safety.

So, it seems he existed both before, and after the Challenger disaster. Further, it seems he held a rather significant position at UW-Madison before, during and after the Challenger disaster. Odd, that. Once again, claim refuted.

The entire staff of Science Denier Hall of Shame refuses to remember the brave crew of mission STS-51-L as they are presented in the photo at the top of this article, each with an indication of dishonor. If we are to remember a photograph of the team, let it be the following:

  1. I almost got to thinking this theory was true (eek!), but ultimately I don’t think the conspiracists question enough. It’s hard to believe that others can honestly believe that, apart from anything else, SO many people involved in alllllll of those space missions (the conspiracy theorists say NO-ONE has been to space) would be able to keep a faked anything a secret for all these years!! Secrets don’t stay secrets for long these days, especially when so many people have been involved, and from different countries too (thinking International Space Station).

    • Glad you commented! There’s nothing wrong with considering the merits of the various conspiracy theories out there. Watergate seemed pretty improbable before all the evidence started coming out!
      The comment you added shows logical thinking. (And I’m not just saying that because you came to the same conclusion we did.) You took into account not just the available data, but the probabilities of all that would need to occur for the particular theory to be true.
      We also look into similar issues on our youtube channel ( ), often with a bit of (attempted) humor involved. If that format is interesting to you, we’d be glad to hear your reviews of what we’ve done there. If you find any places where we’re just plain wrong, we’d love to hear about it. Being wrong is a good thing, because when someone corrects us, with logic, reason and data, we learn something new!
      Again, thanks for commenting!

  2. I’ve seen the pictures and they are convincing to me. Now that I’ve skimmed through this article, I see a sizable mistake in writing off NASA’S possible motives backfiring in two ways. The first is that the majority of NASA budget charts show a substantial increase after 1986 where as before it was steadily decreasing. Second the possibility that NASA was trying to scrap the shuttle program by showing how unsafe it actually was. This makes even more sense today since they don’t use the shuttle at all and are co designing capsule style rockets right now. It is impossible to dispute the human element in the shuttle disaster. These people would have to leave family members and their own children for untold amounts of money. It just seems too unlikely at that step. I remember watching the Challenger launch in elementary school, it remains vivid to this day. After seeing the absurd theory I hope that our government is better than this but we do live in the age of deception.

    • Yep ! We live in a world of “witness protection program” style cover up operations & false documents that lead to a non U.S. Citizen becoming President.

      NASA has ALWAYS been a shady $$ vacuum ever since we gave it to Nazis.

      This has NOTHING to do with “denying science”.

      • You are correct J. the vast majority of people these days equate the word conspiracy to crazy, kook etc. What is amazing to me is how easy it is to control and I mean control the overall world view held by the majority of the countries population. Not only the overall world view but the day to day world as well. But what is really scary is the control over how most see the future to be. We aren’t talking dumb people, we’re talking about the control of the mindset of a great number of highly educated and highly intelligent people in all walks of life. This should show just how effective the use of basic psychological techniques really are. The kicker is how very rigid this programmed mindset is. You can argue against this hardened world view with undeniable, documented and even officially disclosed facts and achieve nothing. There is such a lack of discernment concerning the perceived reality that has been created around us that I personally don’t waste my time anymore attempting to rescue people from their false reality. I figure most simply are lost and move on to those who are still not completely deceived.

      • As someone who uses Photoshop quite often I can tell you that the photo of the aged Michael J Smith has his left (our right) eyebrow and eye altered. Someone did an incredibly sloppy job. Looks like they used a “fluid” type setting to “pull” the eye, and then added black dots for brows (the dots come out square). The brow starts to angle up and suddenly just blurred out.

      • Give it back to the Nazis? Seriously? I thought that is how nasa was created….by those German scientists who were offered to come to the states opposed to death after the war. Von Braun is to be looked into, i’d suggest. 🙂

    • I too have seen the pictures and find them very convincing. For those who say that a conspiracy of this size could not happen without someone coming forward with the truth, realize this, 9/11 was a much bigger conspiracy involving hundreds, if not thousands of people. Those involved in this country worked for the government and big financial companies. We may never know the exact identities of the Mossad foot soldiers who planted the nano-thermite in the buildings, but we do know the names of the Zionist businessmen who were involved in every aspect of the crime. There is a massive amount of evidence that has been exposed regarding 9/11. Investigative journalist Christopher Bollyn has been researching 9/11 ever since it happened and he has written several books on the subject. Look up “Solving 9/11: The Deception That Changed The World”. The point is, the people who planned 9/11 and made it happens are still in power. They are part of a ruthless global mafia who have no reservations about killing anyone who talks about their crimes. If they don’t get you they will get your family. This is what President Kennedy warned us about in his speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961. Kennedy said this about what we now call the “Deep State”:

      “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.”

      Nobody wanted to believe that 9/11 happened with the help of some in this country. Those same conspirators had much bigger crimes looming on the horizon, but needed 9/11 to occur in order to carry out the much bigger crimes of war. As the evidence has been exposed the Americans who have been investigating this crime could no longer ignore the facts. 9/11 was an inside job. It was a joint effort of Zionist loyalists within this country and Israel to bring America’s great military power against the enemies of Israel. Why do you think that these people in Washington are so freaked out that Trump is President? It’s because he’s not one of them and there are probably thousands in Washington who are involved or know enough about 9/11 to identify the traitors within the government\Deep State\Global Mafia and they can’t have any real investigation or the power elite are done.

      I think those are the crew of Challenger and I don’t think they ever were on board that day. I think it was a funding stunt pulled by NASA\federal government\Deep State and no one is going to talk about it unless it looks like those responsible cannot get at them. Citizen journalists need to research this and compile evidence. Don’t ever expect this government to do an investigation of itself.

      • These people look identical to me. And it’s easy to believe the government to be capable of such a cover-up considering all the black budget programs we the people know absolutely nothing about yet trillions of our dollars have been stolen/spent on such programs. The government has a solid history of lying to it’s people so really and truthfully the only ones that should take blame for conspiracy theories believable or not are the corrupt government that’s meant to serve the people but unfortunately only serves it’s own agenda.

        • 100% correct! This post is also 100% paid and developed by gov. structures.
          What else they have left to it…

    • Yes it’s all crafty deception starting with this nasa agent here debuking and using his favorite obsessive word conspiracy therorists, honestlly they are getting easiar to read as time goes by. The minute they open their mouth.

  3. I for one cannot dismiss the possibility of a hoax entirely . The commenter says the pictures don’t resemble each other. I disagree
    secondly we cannot know what motivations nasa may have. As above commenter stated nasa budget actually increased after 1886. Perhaps the hoax was only meant to be an unmanned empty shuttle sent to orbit? Like in the movie Capricorn one the disintegration of the challenger may have been truly accidental . Then nasa was forced to pay off the crew . The above article “de bunking” the possibility of a hoax leaves out many other facts such as ancestry com having NO records of Onizuka brother or McNairs. Also fails to mention that Resnicks father moved across country near the doppelganger resnick. After he collected 2 million dollars from govt for faulty o rings . I for one would like to see a real family picture of the Onizuka and McNair brothers. Also ssdi. Records failed to record or show deaths of the crew until this “conspiracy “came to light recently . One part of got forgot to get the word In timely
    Many other anomalies add up to defy statical belivability Of doppelganger story being coincidence . In closing the government is rife with lies , conspiracy , and fraud to the taxpayers . Not really so hard to believe Crew was paid (or else!!!) For cooperation and silence. May have had an offer they couldn’t refuse.
    The same hired shills that would discredit the hoax theory are same ones who gave us Oswald magic bullet , gulf of Tonkin incident, roswell weather balloon, 911, apollo transversing van allen radiation belt. etc etc etc ad absurdum.

    • Have you ever heard of Occam’s Razor? It is a long-standing scientific principle that suggests that the more logical pretzels you have to twist yourself into in order for something to be true, the less likely it is that your proposition is based in reality. This conspiracy completely fails that test.

      A few points: is a business owned by the Mormon Church, who are apparently fascinated by genealogy because they believe they can retroactively baptize their deceased relatives whether that person would have wanted it or not. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t work that way, but hey – they’re entitled to their religion, no matter how strange I or anyone else happens to find it. That’s the great thing about religion – it doesn’t require proof. Science, otoh, does not work that way. In any case, the point here is that the fact that someone is or isn’t in the database means absolutely nothing. Notice the guys who aren’t in the Mormon database are black. I’m not saying there are no black Mormons, but they are in the minority. It doesn’t surprise me at all that they aren’t in there. Part of the reason the Mormons started in the first place was in order to collect more data and grow their database. Even they are not claiming to possess a complete genealogy of everybody in the world, or even the country. That someone does not show up in their database does not prove that person does not exist. It only proves that the database is still incomplete.

      My grandmother always told us “Be sure the truth will find you out”, or alternately, “Be sure your sins will find you out.” In my 46 years of experience she was absolutely right. The truth does have a way of coming out. The number of people who would have to be involved, of necessity, in order for there to be a conspiracy makes it extremely unlikely, for that reason: sooner or later soneone would slip up and say something to the wrong person, or get a guilty conscience or whatever and the truth would come out.

      Bottom line: extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. So far, no evidence has been presented that stands up to even casual scrutiny.

      • Truth always does come out..i hate how people always say no one can keep a secret, yet completely ignore the fact that the government plans for that. Thats what alot disinformation is about. Yes the truth comes to light, we all hear it. Yet the government then responds with more lies and more lies, the truth is now blended. Not only that but they have agencies that will come out and claim the truth is a hoax, etc….yes NASA is all lies, you honestly can laugh when you research and see all their slip ups, how does ANYONE still believe them? How can anyone still fall for it…because of media repeating the lies over and over just like 911, Terrorists! Terrorists! …u can easily see all the slip ups NASA does, but they overload with more lies, movies, fake space cgi shows! Ever wonder why u still cant get perfect signal on your 2017 verizon phone yet 1990 tech craft is in signal on the edge of our solar system! Common sense can answer it. But were indoctrinated not tonsee the truth

        • How long was Harvey Weinstein’s secret kept under wraps? A pretty long fucking time and clearly a lot of people knew but couldn’t come forward so the idea that a secret can’t be kept for any length of time is absurd. And yes now the truth comes to light and people step forward and they are instantly shamed and people know this so a lot don’t come forward because it’ll do no good. Then you have nonsense conspiracy theories that the media and government push on people with zero evidence and people eat that shit up. There’s no credible evidence that 9/11 went down the way the official story says and yet a lot of people call you a cook for questioning known liars and how these liars benefited from the 9/11 narrative. Then we have the WMD is Iraq story which now has been proven without a shadow of a doubt that this was a false narrative. No apology, no criminal charges brought up. People just move on. I hate Trump but there’s absolutely no hard evidence on Trump and Putin colluding together to steal the White House from Hillary. If there was hard evidence they’d have it given the Orwellian technology they had available to spy on Trump during the election. And yet every damn day I hear people talking about how Trump is Putin’s puppet and how bumbling idiot Mueller is somehow going to save the day and collect the evidence to impeach Trump. Hell even if the evidence was there I wouldn’t trust the guy who fingered the wrong guy in the Anthrax letters or couldn’t even get the very simple IRS investigation done right. Mueller makes Maxwell Smart look like James Bond but I see people buying into the narrative that he’s somehow a genius and man of integrity. So I bring up Uranium One and his role in that and people look at me like I’ve been living on the moon (See how I brought that full circle).

          • I agree precisely with everything you said. We seem to be on the exact same page. When it comes to this government and big corporations I think there is no room at all for affording any of them the benefit of doubt. We are dealing with known, habitual liars and if there is a shred of evidence linking them to a crime then a full investigation is warranted. I think any of the mainstream media who are putting out “fake news” should have their broadcast licenses pulled. MSNBC and CNN appear to be the worst offenders trying to destroy this country from within. As the media steps up their efforts to defend that which they have stolen from us surely the criminals within the government have stepped up their efforts too. This whole sexual abuse scandal is just a distraction. They are up to something evil and rotten and I know it in my bones. This government is not to be trusted, ever. Some are saying the New World Order has been defeated but I do not believe that for a second. No powerful people have been taken down. Nothing has touched the global powers. This is a big psy-op to put the people’s minds at ease. We could clean out Hollywood and Congress and replace everyone and we still have the same globalist problems.

      • E Ruppel, you throw marbles under your own feet by assuming many of the things you said. You are one of the deceived and that’s ok it’s really not your fault, you simply are too blinded by ego to be able to think objectively, that’s a big reason that people like yourself are so easily controlled. I know you cannot understand what I’m telling you but it is indeed the truth.

  4. Can you provide evidence about Carl McNair’s and Claude Onizuka’s lives being documented before the Challenger disaster?

  5. I find just the thought of some idiot even thinking of this as a conspiracy immensely upsetting and sick. Those people died serving not just their country but the entire world. The more we learn about our Universe the better the human race will become. Should humans ever require an exodus from Earth to some other planet, those people will be thanking NASA and the brave pioneers who made their journey possible.

    To rub their names in the dirt is sickening and testament to how low some people stoop to make money from their YouTube videos. That’s the only incentive for these charlatans, post a video which by it’s title will encourage anyone to watch it’s contents. The sooner YouTube grows a pair and starts banning this kind of tripe the sooner such conspiracies will die. Without that YouTube payment for views the offensive videos will vanish overnight.

    • I served my country in the USAF and as a matter of fact I was on my 13th day of basic training when we heard about this “horrible tragedy.” Of course we then watched it on TV. It’s despicable what the USA does to us with the mainstream media and educational system: BRAINWASHING, PROGRAMMING, INDOCTRINATING, MISINFORMING and DUMBING DOWN. Precisely as depicted by Aldous Huxley and George Orwell from Brave New World and 1984, respectively (fictional novels in case you didn’t know). Keep on grazing in the field, baaaaaah, baaaaaaah. I fear that you will have the shock of your life in the very near future.

  6. Are you kidding me? The old photo of the alleged Christine McCullough is NOT EVEN HER! Compare it to the flight team photo at the end, IT IS SO OBVIOUS! And every photo comparison matches up… the old white guy could’ve easily had ear surgery, but I bet it’s just that as he aged, his ears grew larger as they say, and they drooped a bit. Easy plastic surgery on browline as well. The story of the “two” astronauts/pilots… Yeah, right. Extremely lame stories, or even too confabulated in one case and identical facial features and even the way the black guy holds his head for the shot! COMPLETE HOAX! You also know that NASA was born by the NAZIs at the end of WWII, or you didn’t? As far as motive, I’d guess greed, power, evil. Same world, different day. WAKE UP! DONT BE A SHEEPLE! NASA=NEVER A STRAIGHT ANSWER; NOT A SPACE AGENCY. I could go on but, do your own damn RESEARCH!

    • Things happen on this planet, yes. I dont consider myself a sheep at all, and there are plenty of things going, which I dont velieve a single bit. However THAT ONE, is ridiculous and if you, Tracy, really believe that conspiracy theory then i think you’re lost actually….they dont change their names and have facebook pages? Come on, please….also they really dont look alike that much. Why would you “ear surgery” instead of a real plastic surgery that makes you look different? You tell people to wake up, which is true, but in this case its you who is dreaming.

    • Sharon A. McAuliffe, Syracuse Law Professor, who looks like Sharon Christa McAuliffe, Challenger Payload Specialist and is the right age to be her is also a cousin to Terry McAuliffe, Co-chairman of President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign and Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. Presently he is the governor of Virginia and is planning to run for president in 2020. How much more do you need to know about him other than he worked for the Clinton criminals? It is said that Terry McAuliffe is an advocate of gun control and is very interested in NASA funding.

    • Correct. That is a picture of Laurel Blair who died on the Columbia tragedy. That exact photo can be viewed via Wikipedia. These conspiracists make me sick!

      • Yes, Lou Ferguson, CM “died” (meaning: did not die) in a 1986 NASA travesty, and then she “died” (meaning: did not die) under a new name / backstory in a 2003 NASA travesty. It’s called an actor doing more than one job because the actor is still alive. Hopefully your own comment will help you to understand this.

  7. I think as dumb and evil as you all say NASA is that they would know to at LEAST change the NAMES of their blown up astronauts. And I’m supposed to be offended that YOU GENIUSES call ME a sheep and type barn noises at me. Yep, pretty offended lol.

  8. LOL this is them. all of them too. NASA has officially stated that those astronauts survived the explosion and possibly died in an escape pod once it hit the ocean – what thinking person actually believes that.

    The truth of the matter is that in the early 80’s, there was no such thing as the internet, YouTube, the ability to research articles from all over the world in a matter of seconds. You had to get your information from encyclopedias, buy books, or go to the library. The average person was at the mercy of what was told to them.

    FF to now and all of that is different. You’d be hard pressed to tell somebody who’s 25 and under that this WASN’T a fix or a hoax, it’s mainly people in their mid 30’s on up – our brains have been deeply programmed and something of this magnitude being a lie is far too much to take it. It won’t be long before this little secret is uncovered too, watch.

  9. I love the argument that since they didn’t try hard enough to change their identity, then it couldn’t be them. I would argue that in this “conspiracy” scenario the astronauts would be completely unprepared, logistically and emotionally to make a clean break from their lives, and compromises could have been made. Also, when you see how often this “witness protection” argument is used in similar situations, I would think it’s part of the play book at this point.

    As far as these photos go, I find the article’s attempt to convince the reader that there’s “nothing to see here folks” hard to agree with. I understand that SDHS doesn’t believe they’re the same people, but why not seek out and provide actual evidence. Instead, they offer what can only be characterised as opinion and make weak references to ear anomalies and skull structure with out following up or explaining it.

    Why not track down some tangible information on these people implicated in this hoax theory instead of referencing where they allegedly worked and went to college. It seems that the article simply refers only to the long existing cover up information that, by its nature, this conspiracy theory already contests. If there was any effort to corroborate the already existing information and therefore the identity of the people in question, I didn’t see it.

  10. I don’t think this site has debunked anything regarding this conspiracy. When you have people who are dead ringers for the actual astronauts with the same or very similar names and they are the right ages, there is a problem. Can anyone explain the film footage taken from a spectator bleacher at the launch site of Sharon Christa McAuliffe’s parents right after the shuttle blew up? They looked sort of stunned but then they are seen briefly smiling and then laughing. Is that because they knew their daughter wasn’t on that rocket?

  11. Then someone please explain what happened to.Ronald Reagan’s Star Wars , which is probably why the Shuttle was blown.???

  12. If you want even a shred of credibility about this subject, then don’t put Laurel Clark’s picture next to Sharon McAuliffe’s and say it’s Christa McAuliffe. Laurel Clark was on Columbia. You really blew it on that one. Sorry…

    • The real mystery in my opinion is what actually happened to Christa? She probably works quietly somewhere out of the spotlight completely. But again, don’t put Laurel Clark’s picture up. You can even see her name on her clothing. Another interesting thought is that if Laurel Clark is actually Sharon McAuliffe, the lawyer, then was Columbia a hoax as well? Who knows!!!

  13. After going through the comments here I can conclude that a vast majority are written by very paranoid people. I’m seriously concerned as to the heading of the once greatest nation on earth.

    The earth is flat too, right?


  14. OMG this all makes me feel lucky not to be an American. America, as with probably all of the
    other G8 members , have been and are still guilty of serious wrongdoing, cover-ups etc etc.
    but all this bullshit about the Challenger, 9-11, NASA etc makes me sick. You all choose to look at one set of evidence and any challenges to it you ignore. Here’s my conspiracy theory. There is a group of people hellbent on destroying any trust in democracy and invent all these theories
    to plant the seeds of doubt in all those millions of disillusioned or downright crazy Americans.
    You all deserve Trump.

    • Well, stay sick then. If you buy into the official 9/11 narrative, it’s apparent you know very little about it. There is a stack of legitimate evidence pointing to a conspiracy between the Bush administration, their buisness associates, and Mossad to bilk the tax payers and insurance companies out of billions whilst breaking ground on the Oded-Yinon plan, all against an esoteric or occult ceremonial backdrop. You don’t believe it because you were not meant to know.

  15. The counter evidence honestly seems a little weak. It doesn’t show DNA evidence or even a picture of the twins together, it’s mostly subjective evidence. Work history seems easily fabricated. Michael J. Smith shows the same crease in the nose, a fairly unusual trait. Richard Scobee has very unique eye placement (almost impossible to change with cosmetic surgery). I think DNA evidence or picture of the twins together would really help disprove this; however the evidence disproving this theory seems a little weak. Overall, a work history that could have been fabricated and small cosmetic changes that could be done with very minor surgery or a little dental work is what is disproving this theory… which seems questionable

    • And please Google for people who look alike and have the same name. It’s really not such an impossible coincidence as you might believe.

  16. Nuts tell us that pretty much every famous person killed didn’t actually die (started in the modern age with James Dean), that everything presented to you is a lie. They NEED it to feel special, important, informed. They extrapolate government lies to include EVERYTHING EVER. It would take moments for them to determine that each of these people had prior existences before 1986 that continue to this day. But to do that would destroy their woo woo. They NEED the woo woo.

  17. Tell me how the two richards look alike and have the same name. Do you see and not see at the same time?

    • I looked. Huzzah. They are not the same person. One real person died in 1986. The other real person didn’t. In this country we call a spade a spade. You are not a spade. You are a fucking idiot.

    • I am a dentist and I reviewed different photos of the lawyer Resnik and the astronaut. In pictures with higher quality that you find on google you can (at least I can and please ask any dentist you want) see that they do not have the same teeth. And of course you can change the appearance of teeth and so on but the lawyer in the picture I reviewed (you can zoom in pretty well) definitely had no veneers or crowns on her Incisors.
      Also the second incisor (the smaller one on her right (your left)) has a very different position than the astronauts‘. She could have gotten an orthodontic treatment, yes, but firstly at that time orthodontic treatments were not done on adults and even if, scecondly, the result still would have looked different than the lawyer‘s teeth.
      As for those who argued with plastical surgery (ears etc): you clearly don’t have enough knowledge about plastic surgery as well. You can’t just completely change the form of an ear. Smaller adjustments, maybe, but not in the degree some of these pictures differ.
      Also: if you hold on to the belief that plastic surgery was done and dental work as well, don’t you think they would have at least changed their names? I mean come on… and why not change the facial structures even more?
      This all doesn’t add up.
      Sorry to say so but you guys are clearly on the wrong track here.
      And really: print out some good images and show them to your dentists and surgeons and ask for their opinion if you don’t believe my arguments.

  18. does stan lee have a brother also what about nicole nichols lt uhuru from star trekstan lee died twice uhuru once and i still alive , what the hell is going on?

  19. The reason there is ZERO similarity between the pictures above of Sharon Christa McAuliffe, and Sharon A. McAuliffe is because…the picture they are presenting as Christa McAuliffe IS Laurel Blair Salton Clark who died on the Columbia disaster. This is inexcusable! If you’re going to go down this road to make such a comparison, you’d better get your pictures right!

  20. hahahahahah who wrote this bllsht?! U say look on pic Judith Resnick its not same person, wtf? are u loking on same pic what i doo?! for me its sure same person!!!!! loook if u need some good proof that is same person check this vid about same teeth shape of Judith Resnik

  21. I find it quite interesting that there are people in existence that have the same name and look very similar to the ActorNots that were on the Shuttle. Your going tell me that an exhaustive investigation has been done with DNA and Lie Detector tests to prove that this is all bullshit and the ActorNots really died on the Shuttle that day????
    The amount of scams and lies perpetrated against the American people is so vast that I would not doubt that this was a giant scam, especially with the fact that the Earth is not a Globe and nothing gets past the Firmament. The Nasholes conveniently lost the data to get back to the moon, lol wake up sheeple. The bullshit is thick.

  22. If you believe this story is still true you also probably are extremely angry when people disagree with you. They are alive and look exactly like their pictures. This was someone paid to write an oposite view. Keep believing blindly and running into walls peoplez Then keep complainimg and crying in the public about what’s wrong and never do anything about it. Keep hiding in your closet people. Author you are the True sell out and coward for writing this article.
