In though the disintegration of the Challenger was

  In its two hundred and twenty eight
years of presence, America has seen numerous tragedies and disappointments.
The worst wasThe Challenger Disaster in 1986. The globe was
stunned on January 26th as
everybody witnessed the Challenger detonate, killing all
seven astronauts. This happened because of a flaw in the design
of the shuttle’s solid
rocket booster and disintegration of an o shaped disk in its right
solid rocket thruster. The shuttle
itself did not explode, but various structural
failures caused the orbiter to disintegrate. Even though the
disintegration of the Challenger was not warned
about, the space travels could be aware
of something being bizarre with the
spacecraft. The calamity of The Challenger
was activated by a series of events, the O
shaped ring, on the aircraft’s right
solid rocket booster had failed after liftoff.
Thus the pressurized hydrogen gas escaped from
inside of the thruster. This vaporized material caused the two bits,
the booster and an orange external gas tank, to disintegrate. Therefore,
73 seconds after lift-off, the highly explosive reaction between
oxygen and hydrogen yielded a
complete annihilation of the spaceship.     After
the mishap, NASA refrained from sending astronauts into space for over
two years as it restructured the structures of the spaceship. The event cannot
be accused on one individual, yet rather is a group downfall. Had
NASA held self-uprightness, and had not forced ‘The Challenger’ to
leave that day, the incident could have been avoided. The choice to
launch the Challenger Shuttle and its tragedy majorly affected the
public and the administration of the
space program.  Challenger’s unique mission
and the demise of Christa McAuliffe (as the first
civilian worker, teacher) led open the door to discuss and research how the
management used Decision Support System (DSS) to decide the choices
which will influence public trust.
