Staff Reviews


Adam Higginbotham deconstructs the events leading up to the Challenger disaster. The space shuttle was supposed to make going to space a routine, like taking a plane from New York to London. From the very beginning, NASA and their engineers bit off way more than could chew. Flaws popped up, band aids were applied, and they moved onto new issues. But the band aids would wear off and cause more problems than NASA’s engineers knew how to handle. I couldn't put this story down - Higginbotham brilliantly digs out the story and gives us a step-by-step guide for how not to run a space program.
