Although it halted the passion for space missions, judgments on the cause of the explosion began. Political explanation linked the explosion to low temperatures while engineers put blames on the management. The judgment was considered from scientific perspective where an analysis on the design of the space shuttle was made.

The Challenger explosion soon after launch was mainly caused by both engineering and decision-making errors. The O-rings of the vessel failed to seal properly as after interacting with cold temperatures (Jarman & Kouzman, 1990). The result was leakage of gas, which encountered the firing booster, and the intense heat of the booster ignited the gas causing an explosion... ?

The commission investigating the accident discovered that engineers had been concerned about the O-rings for over eight years (Vaughan, 1996).

(Parker, 2003, p. 7) This is an extremely important period in the development of life on earth, because many scientists believe that it begins with a relatively short period of some 5 million years, between 543 and 538 million years ago, which is known as “the Cambrian explosion”.
