May I remind you:
The Rogers Commission found that NASA
's organizational culture
and decision-making processes had been a key contributing factor to the accident. NASA managers had known that contractor Morton Thiokol
's design of the SRBs contained a potentially catastrophic flaw in the O-rings since 1977, but they failed to address it properly. They also disregarded warnings from engineers about the dangers of launching posed by the low temperatures of that morning and had failed to adequately report these technical concerns to their superiors. The Rogers Commission offered NASA nine recommendations that were to be implemented before shuttle flights resumed.
