Did Col Husband and His Crew Die for "Environmental Correctness?"
I was listening to Todd Schnitt this afternoon and he was reading this article on an analysis of how the change in that materials used in producing the ceramic insulating tiles on the shuttles casued 11 times more tiles to fall off in a flight. The change? They had to quit using Freon in the production process due to compliance with Federal environmental laws. The problem was reported on in 1997. sarc I feel so much better now, that the owls and whales are safe, but a group of humans had to be sacrified as a trade off, as I'm sure Evelyn Husband and the other spouses and families of the Colombia does, too. /sarc Btw, if you haven't picked up Evelyn's book, "High Calling", you need to find it and read it. It's quite a story about Rick. Thanks to Mudville Gazette for the Open Post!
