Changing the Culture of Human SPaceflight

Location: Wentworth 1

Space Shuttle Program Manager Wayne Hale will present via live feed a lecture highlighting NASA's change in culture that brought the Space Shuttle back to flight!

This is a live talk at Rice University in Houston Texas, streaming ONLY to UH Hilo

The loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia was a shock to the nation but especially to the leadership of NASA who believed that they were providing strong protection against just such an event. The Columbia Accident Investigation Board went beyond the technical causes of the accident to the culture, history, and human factors which lead to catastrophe. After Columbia, Wayne Hale was appointed to leadership in the Space Shuttle program with the instruction to not merely correct the technical problems but also address the management culture. Hale will briefly describe the history and management culture at NASA prior to Columbia, and then delve into the changes —both technical and human — that were made as the Space Shuttle was returned to flight. These changes affect NASA today as it gears up for the next phase of deep space exploration.
