Thanks. The one i'd recommend reading first is "The Challenger Disaster". I'd always felt i'd trust NASA with placing my life above all else until, wondering how whole teams of authoritative, trusted people connected by conference call to make the routine, final "Go/No Go" decision for launch, could decide to launch seven human lives in the freezing outside conditions which they did.

It's a very thick book, but don't feel intimidated by it. To place my trust in an agency with such a good record and then reading what i read, it was well worth the time i'd spent.
