    Yep. The series really goes in to depth about it, bottom line is engineers at the plant that built the boosters warned NASA that there was a risk of failure at lower temps but they went ahead with the launch anyway (the temps were in the high 20's prior to the launch).

    I watched a program about it a long time ago. I'm not sure if it's the same one. There was one engineer who wouldn't sign off on the launch. I bet he sleeps better for it.

    Good morning Ronin.

    I think I mentioned it before but I had another visit by two spotted fawns drinking out of my bird bath. I'm not sure if they have been weaned but I didn't see the mother. Maybe they are on their own. They were adorable of course but their little heads could barely peak over the top to get a drink. They make the world a beautiful place.

    I took some photos of the fawns. I'm so glad the mother was with them. It makes me feel better!

    Good morning as well. I need a second cup of coffee to wake up as one cup is not doing it.
