    Logical Reasoning The greatest weakness in the American space shuttle program was the O-Ring system in the rocket boosters. The solid rocket boosters were manufactured in ring-like fragments which had to be attached and sealed to prevent hot gases from escaping during takeoff. A system of O-Rings made from a rubbery material was developed to accomplish this goal. The O-Rings were supposed to expand or contract depending on circumstances, but were fatally flawed at a design level. The rubbery material would not expand in low temperatures and almost led to the loss of a shuttle on several occasions. Engineers who recognized the problem were ignored and NASA judged the risk acceptable. Eventually, the Challenger space shuttle exploded a few seconds after take off due to the O-Ring failure. The crew were likely not killed in the explosion, but died after the crew cabin plummeted into the ocean. The engineer who had tried to stop the launch and warned that the shuttle would explode was fired after his public testimony exposed the truth.Based only on information in the passage decide whether the following statement is true, false or it cannot be determined:If the Solid Rocket booster had been built as one single item, risk of catastrophe would have been very low.
