Why didn't they check this time?
==============================================

41 most likely for the same reason they flew the Challenger when Qualified Engineers on the Pad said DO NOT FLY THE BIRD and the Unqualified launch Supervisor said Launch.

We have a sickness in this country where they put unqualified people in places for social reasons

Good. It seems like they took most of them off there.

Yes, eBay was very fast.

I have to admit: I'm impressed.

Most auctions were canceled within 2 hours.

$500.000 for 7 domains (not even good names) was ...pervert.

Some people still have manners, class and respect.

These 7 astronauts deserve it.

A very sad day I was going to take my little girls over to the Cape this morning to watch the landing. When we woke up and saw how cloudy and hazy out I didn't think the landing was going to be a go? I still don't know how to exlain to them what has happened. To 2 five year olds space travel is very confusing. We watch rockets go up and they don't undestand how they work without people "driving" them. It's so sad to have another teacher on board. With the school age kids to have to understand this is tuff.

R.I.P.

Insulation of course (Puder did struck, I just corrected it).

The picture what likely happened seems to get much clearer.

Yes, heads will roll - but mainly NASA is thrown back 2-3 years. They already had problems to get funding from the govt.

Just 2 failures in 115 missions is a much better rate than on many Apaches...

Default All Shuttles grounded

All Shuttle flights are suspended until further notice.

NASA is thrown back for 2-3 years. Even the ISS is endangered.

What happened:

All experts on TV now seem to agree:

The thermal insulation of the left wing was broken.

From loosing the sensors untill complete loss of contact it took 5 minutes.

Within this time the left wing "melted" in 1600 degrees.

The astronauts had no chance.

I agree with Hyper Baja. When do you just say enough is enough and moth ball that vehicle. $$$$$$$$ thats why. Alot of parts have to fatigue after that much us. Maybe will find out they need new equipment after so many flights. Lets not forget these trips put the shuttle through some serious brute force.
