After reading Challenger Analysis in Tufte's article (attached), briefly describe why YOU believe the Challenger accident occurred.
Also, answer the following questions:
· Was the Challenger accident preventable?
· What specific factors led to the accident that YOU believe is relevant to this course (Analyzing & Visualizing Data)?
· What are your expectations for this course?
Expand upon the above discussion in a 3 page double spaced, APA formated document, describing the specific aspects from the Challenger accident that helps us better understand the importance of effective data visualization.
Also, complete the following activity:
· Re-create at least 1 visual aid from Tufte's article that you believe would better describe the dangers surrounding the launch.
· Expound upon Richard Feynman's congressional investigation and articulate a better argument as to the cause of the accident.
· What did you learn from this case study?
