Who Discovered Why The Challenger Exploded?
Everyone knows Richard Feynman’s famous televised demonstration that the Challenger had exploded because its O-rings got stiff when they were cold -- but it wasn’t Feynman’s discovery. It was Sally Ride’s.'

Attempting and Modifying the Kinesis Advantage - Grand Rounds Engineering
On the addition of o-rings to one’s Kinesis keyboard:
"The keys on the sides of my pinkies were no longer such a chore to press, and actually felt quite comfortable (kind of like Apple chiclet keys). I tried it with and without o-rings, and with the Rosewill key caps with and without o-rings. At this point I felt very little difference between the kinds of key caps, but a huge difference because of the o-rings. Those are definitely the best $2.00 investment I’ve done in a while and now I actually prefer using these keys to the other mechanical keyboards mentioned earlier."
