On January 28 1986 the space shuttle Challenger rested in the launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center Florida The crew had no idea what they were going to experience as they went over their last pre-flight checks The countdown began and the shuttle took off However 73 seconds later a space shuttle sized ball of fire emerged in the air where the Challenger and its crew were last seen This event devastated much of the United States and others around the world It is still remembered as one of the worst tragedies that NASA has experienced Investigations revealed that a simple O-ring malfunction was the cause of the disaster This was the result of poor planning and execution by the many scientists and engineers working on the project Whether it was a design or mechanics failure the outcome was brutal Scientists and engineers many times are the people who deal with these areas on projects like space travel They do the same work many times but they are very different from each otherScientists and engineers have been paired together for a long time Some people believe they do the same job but others think scientists are all like Albert Einstein and engineers are all construction workers Neither one of these claims is entirely correct but they do hold some truth to them For example the book Top 300 Careers describes a civil engineer as an engineer who plans many different construction projects like bridges roads and buildings Many civil engineers are the foremen on construction sites and will occasionally have to work on the construction citation This information shows why many people confuse civil engineers as construction workers Even though civil engineers may work on construction projects their main job is to plan and supervise the project This confusion is also evident with scientists Albert Einstein
