As I understand the later Columbia disaster, while NASA was at first surprised that the foam insulation would come off the fuel tank and strike the shuttle during launch, by the time Columbia launched they'd seen it happen so many times they assumed it could do no harm. This in spite of the fact that 17 years earlier Feynman would warn against this very posture towards risk: "In his account, much of the reasoning about risk at NASA effectively took the form that, if disaster hadn't happened yet, it probably wouldn't happen next time either."
