NASA’s science malfeasance stems from its flawed organizational culture, the book notes, “In the years following NASA’s best result of landing men on the Moon and returning them safely to Earth, a new politically-based organizational culture took root at NASA … no longer directed by scientific and engineering ethos, but by political mentality and public relations stunts. Rather than correcting long-known fatal design flaws, NASA management ‘rolled the dice’ with the lives of Space Shuttle crews to push forward its political agenda. The Challenger and Columbia disasters are only the highly visible markers of NASA’s malfeasance and betrayal of trust. Out of sight and far more persistent and pervasive is NASA’s concerted misrepresentation of planetary science, NASA’s systematic failure to tell the full truth.”
