My name is Richard C. Cook, and I was the NASA analyst who testified before the Presidential Commission on the dangers of the solid rocket booster O-ring seals after the Challenger disaster of January 28, 1986. My new book, Challenger Revealed: An Insider’s Account of How the Reagan Administration Caused the Greatest Tragedy of the Space Age, was published in January 2007 by Thunder’s Mouth Press. I wrote the book as a first-person narrative based on my experiences at NASA. I retired recently from the federal government and am now a writer, speaker, and consultant on public policy issues, organizational change, and conflict resolution.
