Well, I guess you don't know much about this then I am guessing. proper restraints would have been half the battle. The other half would have been the crew wearing their pressurized suits. When Challenger was destroyed on lift off, the crew was alive for a good portion AFTER the explosion... I believe what killed them was the sudden impact with the ocean. If the crew had been wearing their pressurized suits, had their visors down and were restrained properly and the parachutes were not MANUAL we might have had a different turn out for the crew. ::shrugs:: just my two cents I suppose.
