2. There Was Nothing That Could Be Done...

...the damage was beyond NASA's capabilities and the report was it "could" lead to a catastrophe...not that it would. There was a chance NASA would luck out and the damage was minimal. Even with the knowledge, you have two options...first is to leave the Shuttle up in space and let the oxygen run out...a torturing death for the astronauts and their families or take the gamble and if it blows up it'll be over with quickly (which it was). It was a horrible situation and part of the risks of the job...these people willingly took the chances to further human knowledge. Look at your microwave, computer and many other modern conveniences...courtesy of NASA and government funding. This was a tragedy plain and simple...looking for scapegoats a decade later serves nothing...
