So sad, especially since some of the disasters could have easily been prevented, but hindsight is always 20/20.. :'(

I was incredibly shocked when I found the NASA engineers knew already what fate awaits the Columbia space shuttle... I still can;t believe it :(

The Apollo 1 disaster had nothing to do with nylon. The problem was the very high concentration of oxygen in the capsule, which is what was brought up and not properly addressed.

That's such a basic factual error that I have to doubt much of the rest of the video - pretty much anything I don't already know to be true.

After seeing this, I started wondering if being an astronaut could be one of the most dangerous jobs. Found this article: http://www.penmachine.com/2003/02/is-being-astronaut-most-dangerous-job.html

"So, at the very lowest end of the range, with 34 deaths out of 450 spacefarers, we have a 7.5% death rate. In terms of the "dangerous jobs" statistics above, that's more than 7,500 deaths per 100,000. So being an astronaut or cosmonaut is well over 60 times as dangerous as logging, and has nearly twice the fatality rate as climbing the world's highest mountains."
