SUMMARY: NASA announced the creation of an independent Engineering and Safety Center (NESC) at the agency's Langley Research Center. The 250-person division will provide independent assessment and safety review for various NASA projects and missions. The office was a response to the Columbia disaster, ideally to prevent the kind of safety problems that were uncovered by the investigation team. The team leader has yet to be announced.

This is something that SHOULD have been in place after the Apollo 13 incident! But better late than never I suppose! I can only hope that THIS time they follow up completely on any and all reported concerns.
