Things to do when you can’t sleep: xxv


xxv : Watch morally improving television

Challenger is a dramatised documentary-style film based on Richard Feynman’s account of the investigation which took place following the  Challenger space shuttle disaster.  ‘Dramatised’ is the operative word here, and I certainly don’t think this told us anything new.  However, for those of us who watched the shocking simplicity of Feynman’s icewater experiment the first time round, it brought back memories, and on this occasion it felt very personal to watch the manoeuvres of investigation, whitewash and whistle-blowing.
