This is a brief article describing the events that led up to the burning up of the Challenger space shuttle. The article is objective and lists the findings as were found by NASA’s review boards. Covault, C. (2008, September). Shuttle Deadlines Debated. Retrieved November 24, 2009, from LexisNexis Academic. This article describes the process by which the shuttle program will be dismantled. The author argues that the program should not be terminated because all of the experience gathered throughout the program’s history. He gives lots of facts and figures that give a clear picture of just what the U.S is trading by discontinuing the program. Berger, B. (2005, July 15). Space shuttle program begins last chapter . Retrieved November 24, 2009, from MSNBC.com. This article argues that the termination of the shuttle program is inevitable because it hasn’t accomplished it goals and might even be headed backwards. Using lists of problems the program is facing the author tries to persuade the ready to his argument. The author uses a very logical rhetoric. Bromberg, J. L. (1999). NASA and the space industry. Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins University Press. This book gives insight into the workings of the industry surrounding the creation of the shuttle program. The primary focus is on the extreme cost such a program. The author gives large insights into the true beginning of the shuttle program. The large franchise wars and commercial focus is clearly the main idea of this book, Dowd, A. W. (2009, August). Surrendering outer space. Retrieved November 1, 2009, from Academic Search Premier (43608276). This article argues that the shuttle program should not be terminated until NASA has a new fleet of new age space craft that can take their place. A main point in the article is the U.S. would be giving up its strategic capabilities until the new shuttles rolled of the assembly line. Gorn, M. (2005). NASA the complete illustrated history (pp. 211-281). New York: Merrell Publishers Limited. This book combines text with photographs to tell the entire history of NASA. Each mission is spelled out in detail. There is a whole chapter devoted to the shuttle’s history. This book is written through a charter with NASA. This book makes the history seem scientific and happy. It only talks about flux in the program if they were really bad.

This article talks about the potential consequences of terminating the space shuttle program. It mentions the major loss of jobs for all the space shuttle engineers and scientists. The author argues that the termination of the shuttle program would cause a major loss in knowledge and experience that NASA would need to develop the new generation of space shuttles. Watson, T.
