BUCKLE UP: If You Already Don’t Trust NASA, You’ll Love This One… Are The Crew Members of 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger Still ALIVE?

[Ed. Note: Please read this entire article carefully. It’s beginning to appear that when former CIA Director William Casey said, “We’ll Know Our Disinformation Program Is Complete When Everything the American Public Believes Is False.”… he wasn’t kidding. He meant EVERYTHING.]

by Éowyn, Fellowship of the Minds:

Friends, wrap your head with duct tape (to prevent it from exploding). It’s Down-the-Rabbit-Hole time! If you’re age 40 years or older, you’d probably remember January 28, 1986.

That was day of the Challenger disaster, when the NASA Space Shuttle orbiterChallenger broke apart 73 seconds into its flight over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida at 11:38 EST. All seven crew members were killed, including five NASA astronauts and two payload specialists.

Millions of Americans (17% of the total population) watched the launch live on TV because of Payload Specialist Christa McAuliffe, the first teacher in space. Media coverage of the explosion was extensive: one study reported that 85% of Americans surveyed had heard the news within an hour of the accident.

Challenger disaster

We were told that Challenger disintegrated because of a malfunctioning O-ring seal in its right solid rocket booster. The O-ring failure caused a breach in the SRB joint it sealed, allowing pressurized burning gas from within the solid rocket motor to reach the outside and impinge upon the adjacent SRB aft field joint attachment hardware and external fuel tank, leading to the structural failure of the external tank. Aerodynamic forces broke up the orbiter.

The crew compartment and many other vehicle fragments were eventually recovered from the ocean floor after a lengthy search and recovery operation. The exact timing of the death of the crew is unknown; several crew members are known to have survived the initial breakup of the spacecraft. But the shuttle had no escape system, and the impact of the crew compartment with the ocean surface was too violent to be survivable.

The disaster resulted in a 32-month hiatus in NASA’s shuttle program and the formation of the Rogers Commission, a special commission appointed by then President Ronald Reagan to investigate the accident. The commission found NASA’s organizational culture and decision-making processes had been key contributing factors to the accident.

These are the names of Challenger’s 7 crew members:

  1. Francis Richard Scobee, Commander
  2. Michael J. Smith, Pilot
  3. Ronald McNair, Mission Specialist
  4. Ellison Onizuka, Mission Specialist
  5. Judith Resnik, Mission Specialist
  6. Gregory Jarvis, Payload Specialist
  7. Christa McAuliffe, Payload Specialist

But wait!

What if someone were to tell you that most, if not all, of Challenger’s 7 crew members are still alive and thriving in their new professions, contrary to what we’ve been told?

That is the contention of simonshack and other contributors on the chat forum, They claim 6 of the 7 Challenger crew members are still alive; some even kept their names. Here’s their evidence. ( referenced a short article by Darrell Foss on Opob News, “Was the Challenger disaster a hoax?,” March 2015, as their first source.)

Born on May 19, 1939, Commander Francis Richard Scobee was 46 when he died in the Challenger explosion. He would be 75 years old if he were alive today.

Strangely, there’s a man also named Richard Scobee, the CEO of a Chicago marketing-advertising company called Cows in Trees, who bears a striking resemblance (factoring in the 30-year timelapse) to Commander Richard Scobee — same high forehead, same eyebrows, same wide-set eyes that are slightly tilted down in their outer corners.

Richard Scobee

The source of the pic on the right of CEO Richard Scobee is his LinkedIn page.

If you go on Cows in Trees’ website, you’ll see an animation of a rocket-powered cow in the sky with swirling smoke shaped like the number 6, much like Space Shuttle Challenger as it was seen on TV exploding in mid-air. Wink, wink. CEO Richard Scobee sure has a sense of humor! /sarc

Cows in Trees & Challenger explosion


Born on April 30, 1945, Challenger pilot Michael John Smith was 41 years old when he died in the explosion.

There’s a man also named Michael J. Smith, who bears a striking resemblance to astronaut Michael J. Smith — same horizontal eyebrows, same grey-blue eyes, same vertical indentation in the tip of the nose. This Michael J. Smith is a Professor Emeritus (retired) of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, whose email address is [email protected]


Astronaut Michael J. Smith would be 70 years old if he were still alive today. Well, hot diggidy damn, there just happens to be a 69-year-old Michael J. Smith(the professor?) whose addresses include Madison, Wisconsin! (He’s #74 on this LookUpAnyone list.)


Born on Oct. 21, 1950, Challenger’s mission specialist Ronald McNair, the second African-American astronaut, with a Ph.D. in physics, would be 64 years old if he had not perished in the space shuttle explosion. If Ronald (l) were still alive today, he would look just like this pic of his brother, Carl (r).

Ronald McNair

Carl McNair is an author, education consultant and inspirational speaker. He is the founder and president emeritus of the Ronald E. McNair Foundation in honor of his brother. Here’s Carl’s LinkedIn page. (Please scroll down to my Update of May 9, 2015, for the results of my search on for the birth record(s) of Carl McNair.)


Another Challenger mission specialist, Ellison Onizuka, the first Japanese-American astronaut, also has a lookalike brother named Claude. Born on June 24, 1946 in Hawaii, Ellison would be 68 years old today if he had not died in the Challenger explosion. If Ellison were still alive, he would look just like this pic of his younger brother Claude — same eyebrows, same eyes, same crow’s feet wrinkles, same nose, even the same hair-parting.

Ellison and Claude Onizuka

Claude Onizuka is a Liquor Adjudication Board Member of the Department of Liquor Control, County of Hawaii, Hilo, Hawaii. (Please scroll down to my Update of May 9, 2015, for the results of my search on for the birth record(s) of Claude Onizuka.)


Born on April 5, 1949, Challenger mission specialist Judith Arlene Resnik, with a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, was the first Jewish American astronaut to go into space and the second female American astronaut. She would be 66 years old today if she had not died in the explosion.

If she were alive today, it is not difficult to imagine that after 29 years, astronaut Judith Resnik would look like Arthur Liman Professor of Law Judith Resnik at Yale Law School — dark curly hair, dark eyes, same eyebrow shape, same lines on both sides of the face extending up from the jaw.

Judith Resniks

Judith Resniks1

Simonshack draws our attention to how both Judith Resnicks’ upper lips form a slight peak (on their left) when they speak:

Judith Resniks2

I searched for “Judith Resnik” whose birthday was April 5, 1949 (according to Wikipedia). While there are burials and obituaries for Judith Resnik who was born April 4 or 5, 1949 and died on Jan. 28, 1986 (see below the screenshot I took), I looked through’s 241 death records for the last name Resnik but cannot find the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) for astronaut Judith Resnik or any other Judith Resnik. The only Resnik SSDIs I found are for Gerald Resnik, Paul Resnik, Sharon Resnik, Wulf Resnik, Michael Resnik, Charles Resnik, Stanley Resnik, Gary Resnik, Daniel Resnik, Donald Resnik, and Patricia Resnik. There is no SSDI for Judith Resnik.

Challenger - Resnik1

UPDATE (SEPT. 10, 2015):

Here’s a YouTube video comparing the voices of astronaut Judith Resnick and Professor Judith Resnick (h/t FOTM reader CW). They are the same woman.


Born on Sept. 2, 1948, Sharon Christa McAuliffe was a social studies teacher at Concord High School in New Hampshire when she was selected from more than 11,000 applicants to participate in the NASA Teacher in Space Project. If Challenger had not exploded, she would be the first teacher in space. If she had not died in the Challenger disaster, McAuliffe would be 66 years old today.

Well, there’s a Sharon A. McAuliffe, an adjunct professor at Syracuse University College of Law, who kinda looks like an older astronaut McAuliffe, factoring in the 30 years timelapse. Look at the cowlick of hair, sweeping from the center of their hairlines to the left side of their foreheads.

Sharon McAuliffe

I searched for the SSDI for “Sharon McAuliffe,” with the birthdate of Sept. 2, 1948. I found grave/burial indexes for Sharon Christa McAuliffe andan SSDI for a Sha McAuliffe. See screenshot I took below (click to enlarge):

Challenger - McAuliffe1

Simonshack points us that “It may also be entirely coincidental” that Syracuse law professor Sharon is a cousin of Terry McAuliffe, the current governor of Virginia who was co-chairman of President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign and chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. Terry McAuliffe, an advocate of gun control, is also very much concerned about NASA funding issues. See here and here.

In the end we need to ask ourselves this question:

It’s one thing that one of the Challenger’s crew members resembles someone alive today. For that, we can chalk it up to a coincidence.

It’s another thing entirely that SIX members of the Challenger crew havedoppelgängers who are alive, in some cases with exactly the same names (Richard Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Judith Resnick, Sharon McAuliffe). What are the chances of that?

You don’t have to be an expert in mathematics to know that those odds defy statistical probability.

Update (May 1, 2015):

On the genealogy website, I found the SSDIs of Francis Richard Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and a “Sha McAuliffe” (see above in the section on McAuliffe), but not of Judith Resnik (as I explained above in the section on her above. Here are the screenshots I took of the SSDIs of Scobee, Smith, McNair, Onizuka, and Jarvis. (Click to enlarge)

Challenger - ScobeeChallenger - SmithChallenger - McNairChallenger - OnizukaChallenger - Jarvis

It should be said that although SSDI presumably has the imprimatur of the U.S. government, we still have reasons to be skeptical. I refer you to the curious case of Adam Lanza, who on Dec. 14, 2012, allegedly shot to death, first his mother Nancy, then 20 children and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. We are told that he then shot himself in the head minutes before the police arrived at the school.

Genealogy sites such as initially had Adam Lanza’s SSDI with a date of death (DOD) as Dec. 13, 2012 — one day BEFORE the massacre. Then when bloggers discovered that strange DOD, the genealogy websites quickly changed his DOD to Dec. 14, 2012. See:

  • johnny fever

    But But .. The Earth is still a spinning ball!!!! (stomping feet)

  • AgShaman

    Wow. this is big.

    I vaguely remember being in prison when this happened, and the Librarian breaking down.

  • willygroper

    Mandela, Berenstein/Berenstain Bear effect?

    Wish we had a better shot of their ear lobes and teeth.

    I don’t believe in coincidences.

    Holographic image projection of the televised trauma?

    It is through induced trauma, whether pedo’s self perpetuating or visual that jacks with our DNA & keeps most sheep corralled. It’s what’s allowed them to rule & relegated us to slavery with out visible chains.

    Think about this…Why would ewetoobs leave vid’s up of a man clearly being gunned down if there wasn’t an agenda? Is it not their policy to remove graphic violence? Takes me right back to Gadaffi being buggered on national TV at the dinner hour. IT IS MEANT TO SHOCK/CONTROL!

  • Brian

    NASA or National association of Space actors. Notice only one letter different from NAZI and founded by a NAZI space rocket good guy. Hilarious. Everything they do is a hoax. Every actually watch the original moon landing Sat night program ? Good comedy. Folks were on some good ludes back then to buy that dung. They are a hole for money and a sham. Always was and always will be.

  • Rodster

    National Enquirer news alert !

    • Christine

      Yep, something about that deep. Just looking at THE EARS tells us everything we need to know (INS sorta… kinda… knows something when insisting on profile pictures morons apparently don’t have a clue about: ears don’t shrink, don’t get flat over time, don’t change shape. I bet NASA did too, even in those prehistorical times).

      But let’s not forget either… ELVIS IS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  • Timco

    I must admit, this is very interesting.

    • Christine


      Please don’t waste your time on this. I’d be disappointed. We only have Scobee’s and Smith’s ears to compare but you’ve got your scientific rebuttal right there: remember? If you can rebut one part of the theory, the theory has no merit. Don’t throw common sense out the window.

      • Timco

        Good evening Christine,

        I merely said it was interesting. Many retired astronauts become professors, just as Neil Armstrong did. He taught AE at UC my first year there.

        • Christine

          Yeah but… remember? Armstrong may (or may not) have gone up. Those did die.

          • Timco

            I’m 100% confident they went to the moon. 6 lunar missions. I’ve also met Edgar Mitchell. He is a honorable man. NASA is very corrupt in many ways, but the actual moon missions were not faked. It’s what Neil and Buzz saw while there, that changed them both forever. Neil became a recluse, Buzz a very bad alcoholic. The other Apollo astronauts had a pretty normal life after the program ended. I think Buzz may actually spill the beans before he dies. He has come close to admitting an alien presence.

      • tomche

        I take exception to your direction, Christine. If you look carefully at the pic’s and compare…well, this observer see’s too many similarities to rule out yet another deception. I mean, come on…even if only ONE is shown to be alive, then that blows the lid off the whole thing.
        Frankly, at this point, I look to the opposite of what the lame stream show us. It’s all fraud and deception…but on a scale bigger than any of us can imagine…

  • Rdawg

    So the dead astronauts didn’t even bother to get entirely new names?
    I need a drink…

    • Timco

      Rdawg- Don’t you know that drinking is bad for your health?

    • Christine


      That too. And let’s not forget: Judith is the most common first name and Resnik (sometimes Reznik) is one of the 10 most common Jewish last names in the world. Scobee… SMITH, for Pete’s sake!!! I know for a fact McAuliffe died. I had a case in front of judge McAuliffe (NH. The widower) a couple of years after the shuttle crash. His wife died in that accident. No doubt about it.

      Sandy Hook raises questions.

      This? None whatsoever, except for people who have much too much time on their hands.
