AbstractUsing the example of the Challenger Explosion, the authors of this book focus on the everyday ethical decisions of practicing engineers. The authors discuss the methodology behind their understanding of engineering ethics, review five case studies all linked to the Challenger Explosion, and gives readers an insight into what it was like to have been in the position of engineers and managers asked to make important decisions about the development of the main engine of the space shuttle.
