Write a term paper on Space Shuttle Challenger disaster

Term papers should be an orginal work from just you, roughly 10-15 pages (with diagrams, photos, etc.) The paper will analyze the subject by going through each step of the systems engineering process.  The point of the paper is to demonstrate that you understand the material in the textbook and lectures by using them in the paper – please make sure to do that.  Make sure to not “shoot from the hip” and make the paper an opinion piece, make conclusions and analysis and use the course material as reference.  Include references to the book and to any outside sources you used in your paper.  Use photos, diagrams, or other visuals as makes sense.  As no engineering failure has all of the technical information available, feel free to make some educated guesses as to what happened with regard to various steps of the systems process.
