Trivia

While (understandably) much is made of the "great American achievement(s)" in the shuttle program, the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System, or SRMS, is better known as the "Canadarm" due to it being provided by Canada's Spar Aerospace. See more »

Solving the O ring mystery
20 September 2020 | by LauraAnnGSee all my reviews

I have spent much of my adult life avoiding thinking about this tragedy. It is a case study on how an organization can become wicked and its members essentially the epitome of evil.

For me it was just horribly said to watch this and there is a prevalent sense of horror as events move toward the inevitable ending.

What made it worth watching for me was to learn about Feynman's role. I knew the outline of it but not the specifics. It's quite amazing.

What astonishes new is there are these awful, old, gross NASA administrators who are still totally unrepentant, although they are clearly and obviously to blame for what happened.
