Item description for Some Trust in Chariots by James Thomas...
Overview Gene Thomas was a principal participant in the events surrounding the Shuttle Challenger tragedy in January, 1986. As NASA's Launch Director at the Kennedy Space Center, Thomas gave the final "Go" to launch Challenger on that cold Florida morning. As a Christian, he felt the grace of God's abiding love as his faith was tested on that fateful day. He expresses, through this candid close-up account, the events and political environment leading to the Challenger accident. He gives an insider's view of how the amazing Shuttle is launched and the bravery of the men and women who fly it. With humor, candor, and personal experiences, he relates the real story behind America's first major space tragedy. He shares how God's grace was sufficient and affirms that nothing can separate the Christian from "the love of God which is in Christ Jesus."

Space Exploration meets the Sacred May 25, 2006
This book is must read for those who want to know the complete story behind the Challenger Accident. It is a search for the greater meaning behind personal tragedies. In this case, the personal tragedy was also a national tragedy. This is no outsider's perspective either, it is written by Challenger's Launch Director. Unlike other so-called "tell alls", Some Trust in Chariots is a detailed accounting of the facts and exposes several myths about the disaster which, in the past, have received way too much hype. This book is humble, faith-affirming and inspiring from cover to cover. Most importantly, it honors the incredible seven men and women who gave their lives in humankind's ongoing search to explore the heavens, encouraging us to keep reaching for the stars. -Dr. Charles J Thomas
