He spent 15 years in prison.

1979 - At the age of 84 years old, Catalina was alive when on November 4th, Iranian militant students seized the US embassy in Teheran and held 52 American citizens and diplomats hostage for 444 days. They were released at the end of the inauguration speech of the newly elected Ronald Reagan.

1986 - In the year of Catalina Pol's passing, on January 28th, the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after launch. All seven crew members died.
