I remember seeing this movie 29 years ago when it was on TV. Then it was just a story of a terrible tragedy. Now in 2019 I am seeing a bit of this movie in a training class about "group think" and how to avoid similar situations as the Challenger accident. I do see many reviews from 15-17 years ago that were not kind to the movie. Just know that while you may have not liked the way history was presented, the movie is working well in training new viewers how to avoid a similar situation.
