    A peculiar reason for the Challenger explosion is the invention of the Roman war chariots.
    -The chariots wheels were spaced 4 feet, 8 1/2 inches apart which is the width of two war horses side by side so that the horses wouldn’t pull a wagon through a passage through which the horses could only go through.
    -The standard gauge for wheel spacing on trains was 4 feet, 8 1/2 inches throughout the British Empire
    – America adopted the standard for wheel spacing. They built tunnels through mountains just wide enough for two trains to pass through.
    -The solid rocket boosters had to be built I sections because it would be too large to pass through train tunnels. The sections had to include the O-Rings that malfunctioned on the day of the Challenger launch in 1986 causing the Challenger to explode.

    -Counterintuitive example: Why Challenger Exploded
    -What caused the Challenger to fail?
    -O-rings failed, design required warm temperature at launch, NASA ignored warning that weather was too cold, decision to send civilian to space created pressure to launch, NASA was emboldened by the program’s success to take an unprecedented risk
    -There is no one causation of failure.
    -Roman chariots were built the same width as the horse that carried it. This fact was to avoid the horses ever guiding the chariot through too narrow of a space. Over time, the roads were carved out to this width from the horses tracks. The width was 4 ft 8 1/2 inches. This standard was adopted around the world.
    -The Challenger pieces need to be brought to Florida by train. They were too big to travel in one piece, so they were split up into pieces and reassembled upon arrival. If they did not need to be reassembled, the ship would not have needed o-rings to hold the ship together. Therefore, the Challenger would not have failed.
    -Question your counterintuitive thoughts.
    -Look for the details that make you think and question the idea.

    Riddle: not everything is how it seems, don’t judge a book by it’s cover

    Learned about the Challenger explosion from 1986. The o-rings on the space shuttle did not do the job they were intended to do because of the cold temperature that day.
    Cause: what is the cause?
    The Roman empire created chariots with a width of 4 feet 8 1/2 inches because of the width with the horses pulling the carts. Since then it’s become world wide to use the width of 4 feet 8 1/2 inches for train tracks, charts, and most forms of transportation.
    Train tunnels are only big enough for two trains to travel through at once. This makes it difficult to transport big stuff by train. The rockets for the Challenger were built in Utah and had to be shipped by train to Florida. To make them fit on the trains they were deconstructed and reconstructed, making the O-rings essential. If they didn’t need to do that the challenger won’t have exploded. The 4 feet 8 1/2 inches might have killed those 7 people on that space craft.

    You should be thinking of how to work and create your thesis statement for your research paper.
    Make sure you have a topic, something to argue about, and a stance on that argument.

    We defined who is African American, it is someone who lives in the US and was born in a different country.

    The Challenger exploded, the O-Ring was meant to stop stop the fuel from going to different places. The temperature of the day did not help the O-Ring work properly and the rockets split apart.

    There were several reasons why the flight failed. However the weather was the most reasonable one to blame.

    Rome build roads to help themselves, but the street was not that wide. In order to stop damaging the wheels and be on the road every adopted a standard size of the carts.

    -The challenger was an example of an engineering catastrophe
    -The O rings failed due to being brittle
    -The cold made the rings brittle
    -Many people were watching live when the challenger exploded
    -Christa McAuliffe was going to be the first ordinary citizen in space
    -The cause of the crash was mostly cold temperature, the design also played a major role
    -The parts for the Challenger had to be moved via train, through tunnels
    -They had to be assembled by parts and needed o rings
    -If they didn’t need o rings, the Challenger would not have exploded

    – The Challenger exploded because of cold temperatures in Florida which froze parts on the shuttle.
    – The design of the Challenger required a warm temperature at launch
    – NASA ignored warnings that the weather was too cold
    – Sending a civilian to space created pressure to launch
    – These cause the O-rings to fail because of the cold temperature
    – Roman war chariots were built only as wide as the horse so they could fit in places that the horses could fit and not get destroyed

    A counterintuitive example: Why Challenger exploded, has a couple causes for why it failed. The cold temperature is one of the main reasons why it failed. Horse-drawn carts change to trains. Train tracks are made as small as they can be. This relates to the Challenger because the parts of the boosters needed to fit on a train to travel to Florida so it could be built again. The fact that they needed to travel the rockey in parts means that the rocket needed O-rings.

    Why did the challenger fail?
    – some of the O-rings failed to do their job
    -The design was built for a warmer launch, there was ice on the ground as it was january
    -NASA ignored the warnings that the weather was too cold
    -the decision to send a civilian to space created pressure to launch
    -NASA was emboldened by the program’s sucess to take an unprecedented risk.
    Roman chariots were built to have a total width of 4 feet, 8-1/2 inches. The chariot did not exteed the width of the 2 horses to prevent going through places too narrow. When horse-drawn carriages became obselete due to trains, the standard gauge for traintrack width became 4 feet 8-1/2 inches. The design for the boosters NASA ordered from Morton-Thiokol Corporation in Utah, it was too big for a transport by car. It had to be shipped by train, in several pieces and assembled. This meant it needed O-rings as it would have to be sealed by NASA during assembly.

    There are many reasons why the challenger space shuttle failed. The boosters’ O-Rings had ice on them, which caused them to explode. Using connections from different causations from the past, we can see how it happened.

    It’s seems counterintuitive that the temperature of the day of the launch was not important. Learning about the catastrophic disaster of the space shuttle was jaw dropping because of the failure that was made on live TV. We learned that the mistake happened because of how cold the temperature was that day where it freeze the o rings which made them fail during the launch.
    – Thanks to roman time our cars have a specific spacing between each wheel from left to right so that we can stay in between the lines on roads like streets, and highways.

    Counterintuitive example of the day
    Why the challenger exploded
    The challenger: Rocket that had exploded in 1986, only lasted 73 seconds. All seven crew members were killed
    One was a teacher named Christa McAuliffe, who would have been the first non astronaut to go into space.
    Challenger crash shouldn’t have exploded, only did because of the O rings failed to prevent the escape of fuel an steam and vapor from the edges of the rocket.
    It was too cold for the O rings to function, even though it was in Florida.
    What was the cause of the temperature?
    The cold temperature, and the O rings
    Go back to Rowan times for another explanation
    Roman war chariots were built 4 feet 8 and 1/2 inches apart
    That width is the width of two horses rear ends put together
    It was done that way so if the horses could fit, the chariot could fit
    The roads started to rut at a distance of 4 feet 8 1/2 inches because of the chariots
    The people who made the first trains were building them to 4 feet 8 and 1/2 inches apart
    The roman empire created a standard that the British empire adopted, and that standard was adopted by the world.
    No tunnel is bigger than it is needed to be for trains
    You cannot overload trains, because the train will not fit through tunnels
    The solid booster rockets are huge, so the parts had to make the trip too big for trains through the rocky mountains of to Utah
    If the rockets didn’t need to be assembled in parts, there would have been no need for O rings
    Why did Christa McAuliffe die? Because of the width of a horses ass

    Counterintuitive example: why the challenger exploded ?
    -o rings failed
    -temperature was too cold
    -pressure to launch because of citizen on board
    Roman war chariots 4ft 8.5 inches to train attack being the same measurement
    To get pieced to Florida from Utah, travel by train, take pieces apart in order to fit through tunnels, resemble in Florida. If they didn’t need to resemble they wouldn’t need o-rings therefore the o-rings wouldn’t have failed and the explosion wouldn’t have happened.
    Narrowing proposals
    -find what is counterintuitive
    -categorical
    -academic research needed to back
    -cause and effect resistance toward claim
