How does the theory of groupthink apply to the 1986 Challenger disaster?

Here is a brief trailer for a larger analysis of the disaster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K2vqVAG7iI

Do you, or does the literature, think that NASA’s organizational culture was also to blame for the 2003 Columbia disaster, or was the problem of groupthink alleviated in the intervening 17 years?

Please use your text and online research about the administrative issues that led to this disaster. Remember to cite your sources and reply to at least 2 of your classmates’ posts.

It is often quipped that we all want police officers on every corner, but no one wants to pay for it. It is quite a challenge to make everyone happy in terms of what services the government provides and how much it costs. What have you seen/heard in the news about budgeting?  How does this relate to how you budget? What would happen if you ran a deficit on your household budget? Give the federal budget a shot and see how well you do. 

Using the Budget Explorer’s creative tool, share how you think the federal budget should be allocated. Defend your choices, promote your ideas, and evaluate each others’ proposals. If you are an elected official, will you still have a job if your budget proposal becomes a reality?  Remember to be respectful of each others’ perspectives and priorities. 

Access the website here: http://www.kowaldesign.com/budget/ This tool will let you set up your own budget and show you how yours compares to the federal budget. Analyze these results, explain your choices, and be sure to relate it to your text. Remember to cite your sources.
