Columbia Accident Report

This is the Columbia Accident Investigation Board (CAIB) Final Report, August 2003 - The Gehman Board Report to NASA on the Space Shuttle Program, Also included is the official NASA press conference with NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe in response to the CAIB report. Bonus CD-ROM features: the entire contents of the CAIB CD-ROM with nearly 100 MB of video, dozens of extra NASA documents, over 700 pages including the STS-107 press kit and NASA’s implementation plan for Return To Flight and beyond. Features and Reviews: This is a well written book. It's almost as well written as the 9/11 Commission Report, which is high praise indeed. The report reviews how NASA's prior 30 years lead to the current state of the organization. With that context, it goes on to describe the specifics of the Columbia accident. Next follows the sleuthing that lead to an understanding of the causes of the accident, including enough techincal details for an engineer to be satisfied by the description. Finally, the report reviews the organization and culture of NASA contributed to poor safety management and an unclear relationship between the stated, accepted, and desired risks in what is inevitably a risky endeavour. Each section can be read independently of the others, as if intended for either thorough digestion or quick skimming by a busy Congressman. - A.K. Mitros
