42 – A Culture of Safety (feat. Holly Griffith)

Before sending people in to space, space agencies like NASA or commercial companies like Boeing & SpaceX must take stock of risks to crew and vehicle and do their best to mitigate them. But how does this process actually work? How do you quantify risks to people? And most importantly, how do you determine that the risk is acceptable before you fly? Jake is joined by Holly Griffith, an engineer on the Safety team for NASA's Orion Spacecraft, to talk about risks and to have a candid conversation about what's at stake when making these kinds of decisions.
