Post 30 Yrs After Explosion, Challenger Eng Still Blames Himself
30 Years After Explosion, Challenger Engineer Still Blames Himself

Link to NPR

The night before the launch, Ebeling and four other engineers at NASA contractor Morton Thiokol had tried to stop the launch. Their managers and NASA overruled them.

That night, he told his wife, Darlene, "It's going to blow up."

When Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff, Ebeling and his colleagues sat stunned in a conference room at Thiokol's headquarters outside Brigham City, Utah. They watched the spacecraft explode on a giant television screen and they knew exactly what had happened.

Why would NASA managers not listen to their own engineers?

Seems fishy.

Similar trend in Cyber Security.
