I gave my criteria for an engineering disaster and noted that I was listing them in reverse chronological order, not in order of awfulness. Thanks for chiming in with another disaster, the Union...

Here's a reply from Ted:
Try this acronym on— FAI/FCAPCA
I was working on the Peacekeeper program back in 1983 and I sat next to a couple estimators who threw this one around. It was...

My brothers and I also had that kit, Girder & Panels' Hydrodynamics. We loved it, but mom, not so much. She made sure we only ran the stuff we built (i.e., pumped water through it and added...

Any suggestions for topic for the survey?

Remember Solyndra ?

You can still vote in rounds 4 and 5. And October Sky was in our initial list of 32.

Really great I know exactly what the issue is. Sure is great when you can dig into something like this and actually see how such small and inconsequential parts such as a...

We let readers/viewers nominate movies and we went with what we got. I'm curious as to what tighter criteria you would suggest and what movies you would nominate. And I hope you're voting in the...

Though it's a bit late, you may want to add the current new Miyazaki film "The Wind Rises" (or at least see it). It was nominated for this year's Academy award for best animated picture.

Tron earned 36% of the vote to Andromeda Strain's 64%. I thought it was the correct result; and it wouldn't have mattered which version of Tron it was going up against. Andromeda Strain was...

Can't wait for your hit movie. In the meantime, watch Primer. And we did add IMDB links in the head-to-head voting section. Put your cursor over the movie title and click.

Those fluids/aerospace engineers consider air and water to be fluids so it hardly matters. I think one commonly used term is hydrofoil.

Thanks, but we're looking for movies that appeal to engineers, so they should probably have engineers as major characters, concern events and situations engineer are familiar with, and/or deal...

Do you have any reasons for nominating The World's Fastest Indian?

Why is Apollo 13 such a great engineering movie. (Just looking for solid reasons/opinions)

Yes, but it keeps a lot of Italians employed, both those assembling the car and the many more designing and building all the components that go into it. It also pushes science and technology along...

I read of an interesting solution to the tuition/college loan problem: Make colleges co-sign the students' loans. It would give college administrators an incentive to make sure students graduated...

As an ex-military type, I couldn't let this one pass. Military academies will not pay students/cadets/midshipmen regardless of failure. Fail enough courses, and it probably isn' that many, and you...
