An eminent Indian scientist could help Coonoor chopper-crash probe, a la Feynman in Challenger disaster

Sometimes it helps to have an independent scientist who is not part of the official system to be involved with the probe into a crash which has had an impact at a major national level. There is this precedent in the USA where when the Challenger space-shuttle blew up within minutes of the launch (73 seconds into its flight) on the morning of January 28, 1986, killing all the seven members of the team on board (including the school-teacher Christa McAuliffe), the then US president Ronald Reagan appointed to the official probe team (the Rogers committee) not just those involved with the concerned National Aeronautics and Space Administration (like NASA consultant Robret Rummel) but also the theoretical physicist Richard Feynman who had won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1965 and who had a reputation for independent out-of-the-box thinking.

Now what about the Coonoor chopper-crash of December 8, 2021? Read what Raghu Krishnan has to suggest >>
