Print News Articles

 My scrapbook contains over 100 headlines and articles from different newspapers around the world concerning the rescue. The first article appeared in the Phoenix Gazette the morning of April 22, 1987. The story was picked up by other US newspapers the next day and appeared worldwide the following day. Over the next few months, multiple print magazines ran articles on the rescue. In the late 1990s, the physics of the rescue became an Algebra 2 problem in a text book.

Below are links to some of the different print articles. I consider the coverage found in the LA Times article of May 10, 1987 to be the best newspaper account with their in-depth investigative work that told all sides of the story. I feel that the most inclusive magazine article was in the November 1987 issue of Readers Digest.
