No space shuttles have exploded in space. Challenger disintegrated during launch and Columbia during the re-entry process. Neither were in space at the time. challenger and Columbia +++ The Challenger shuttle itself did not explode. The explosion was of the massive booster rockets lifting it into Space, after a seal failed on one, allowing fuel to leak and ignite. The shuttle remained fairly intact although very badly damaged, and I believe was subsequently recovered from the sea-bed.
