    "JOHNSON SPACE CENTER, Texas (AP) -- The space shuttle engineers who desperately wanted zoom-in satellite pictures of the damaged Columbia in orbit never spoke up at key meetings and never told the manager in charge of the flight.

    They were too uncomfortable. Too afraid. "

    In a field like that it makes things worse to set up an atmosphere where people just do what they're told but then that is the way a successful business is supposed to run these days.
