Inspired by the true story. The night before the Challenger disaster in 1986, a hot headed engineer leads a desperate race against the clock to stop the launch and the subsequent cover up and whistleblowing.
INSPIRED BY THE TRUE STORY On the eve of the Challenger explosion in 1986 one engineer goes to the extreme to stop the launch. This hot-headed engineer makes a desperate race against the clock to call off the billion dollar multi-delayed Challenger launch, convinced the O-ring seals will fail and kill everyone on board. The Company, Marshall Space Flight and NASA made a business decision. He made a human decision.Written by
I saw this movie yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot. It was very intense and you watch it in a panic state when the launch got closer and closer. I was thinking to myself man, I hope he is wrong about the orings. Lol. Oh yeah. It just needed more mental breaks somehow. My wife watched it and she liked the family home life angle. I thought it would be good to show more of the interviews to show the excitement of the astronauts and the public about the launch and their hopes. Overall, the writing was spot on and appealed to my engineering education background the most. My beginning engineering college professor used to tell us all the time, when engineers screw up, people die. This movie is a great representation of a unique story in american history and I aplaude the hard work and dedication.
