Goofs

Will states that the Space Shuttle Challenger accident occurred due to the O-Rings failing at a low temperature (below 40 degrees) and allowing pressurized hydrogen to escape. The O-Rings were part of a solid rocket booster (SRB) assembly, and contained a solid propellant, not a liquid propellant, like the main tank did. While true that the O-rings allowed the high pressure gas to escape, it was a byproduct of the solid propellant combustion, and not a gas stored in the booster. The propellant in the SRB is made up of ammonium perchlorate (an oxidizer, 69.6% by weight), aluminum (the fuel, 16%), iron oxide (a catalyst, 0.4%), a polymer (PBAN, serving as a binder that held the mixture together and acted as a secondary fuel, 12.04%), and an epoxy curing agent (1.96%).

Stunning -- just stunning
25 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is unbelievably great television.

I don't understand the Sorkin haters.

Anyone who can watch this episode without admiring Sorkin is beyond my comprehension.

And the acting and direction live up to his vision.

Truly superb.

Everyone in our living room was simply riveted to their seats the whole time.

I've been biting my fingernails waiting to see whether there were really only 2 more episodes after this or whether we'd all have a reprieve. I understand that Sorkin announced on Friday that he'd been extended for another season. Thank goodness. HBO, you have an extraordinary show here. Well done, all.
