THE WIGGLE ROOM By George D. Morgan 

On the evening prior to the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, two supervisors from NASA have a conference call with three engineers from the Morton Thiokol rocket company to discuss a problem: Challenger is scheduled to be launched the next morning, but the weather forecast is for a temperature of 18 degrees- a temperature far below what is considered safe.  NASA rules prohibit the supervisors from launching in temperatures below 53 degrees without the approval of the solid booster builder- Morton-Thiokol.  The Wiggle Room tells the true story of how five well educated, highly trained men arrived at a disastrous decision- a decision which ended in the deaths of all seven astronauts.
THE WIGGLE ROOM takes you behind the scenes to witness the decisions that resulted in the deaths of 7 American Astronauts.
At the Theatre at St. Clement's, 423 West 46th St, NYC.
Between 9th & 10th Avenue.
