Here is a nice 5-minute introduction to the topic without too much mockery from Jon Stewart!
Stewart even makes a Star Wars reference – an example of people with high responsibility following checklists to avoid mistakes:
“Even Han and Chewie go through a checklist… and they’re traveling through hyperspace!”
Stewart ends with a funny, but sad line:
“It’s so simple… it may never be implemented!”
