Timeline

1907 - In the year that Kathryn Wickersham was born, the Monongah coal mining disaster occurred on December 6th, happening at the Fairmont Coal Company’s No. 6 and No. 8 mines..

It is considered the worst mining disaster in American history and led to government oversight in mining practices.

1986 - She was 79 years old when on January 28th, the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after launch. All seven crew members died. The cause of the explosion was later found to be a failed O-ring. The O-ring failure was due to the unusually cold conditions at Cape Canaveral.
