All 269 passengers (including a U.S. Representative from Georgia) and crew were killed.

1985 - When he was 43 years old, in May, a paper published in Nature by three British scientists reported that a huge hole was discovered in the ozone layer over the Antarctic. It was much larger than expected and is due to the use of manmade chemicals.
