What is the difference between
“A Fact” and “The Truth”?
A Fact is Objective:
The Temperature at launch was below 32 Degrees.
Morton-Thiokol engineers and management knew prior to the Challenger launch that O-Rings had eroded during launches at temperatures below 32 Degrees.
Truth is Subjective:
Launching Below a temperature of 32 Degrees places the shuttle at risk of exploding during launch
We have launched at these temperatures without failure before.
