Nasa angered at Beyonce shuttle clip

WASHINGTON  - The Space agency Nasa has reacted angrily to a new Beyonce song that features an audio sample recorded just after the Challenger shuttle exploded on take-off in 1986, killing all seven crew members.
Nasa issued a statement after the pop star began to receive criticism from Challenger families and others for using the short sample that includes the words “major malfunction” as an allusion to a failed relationship.
“The Challenger accident is an important part of our history; a tragic reminder that space exploration is risky and should never be trivialised,” said the statement from Lauren Worley, Nasa’s press secretary.
