Next Cygnus Cargo Ship Named for Challenger Hero Ellison Onizuka
By Ben Evans, on July 14th, 2021

(...) Launched on 24 January 1985, STS-51C remains the record-holder for the shortest “operational” shuttle mission, lasting just 73 hours. In addition to Onizuka, Mattingly, Buchli and Shriver, the crew also included the Air Force’s first Manned Spaceflight Engineer (MSE), Gary Payton. But STS-51C would earn itself ill-starred repute in the final report of the Rogers Commission—the 1986 presidential inquiry into the cause of the Challenger tragedy—for Discovery launched in exceptionally cold weather conditions and endured severe temperature-related damage to the O-ring seals in her Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs).

Two days after returning from STS-51C, Onizuka was reassigned to STS-51L, the mission which would spell the end of his short life. Originally scheduled for November 1985, STS-51L—whose core NASA crew also included Dick Scobee, Ron McNair, Judy Resnik and Mike Smith—was tasked to deploy a Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS) and later also picked up the Spartan solar physics free-flying payload.
