Since the internet wasn't around in the '80s, most people got their news from the television, radio, and of course, the trusted newspaper! The '80s were full of jaw-dropping newsworthy and political moments that easily defined the decade, including a double Olympics boycott, an array of crazy fads, and loads of space advancements. Let’s test out just how much of '80s news events you remember with this quiz!
When it comes to the 1980s, one major news event that stands out is the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger explosion. On January 28, 1986, the Challenger launched from the United States and exploded into countless pieces, all on live television. This devastating event marked a major turning point in the '80s which aired on every television network and on the cover of every newspaper. It was by far one of the most impactful stories to break in the decade.

Ok, fine, he can also write quizzes on other shows and about other topics. Grudgingly.
