what went wrong when they fired the rockets? i've once read something about the wrong rockets (wrong colour). Can someone tell me want exactly happened...?
I fully agree with Michael. For what it is worth, the only time I have ever heard any misgiving about the rockets was in that awful 1996 CBS miniseries. Capt. Smith, played by George C. Scott, looks up at the rocket and says something like, "They're WHITE! They're supposed to be RED, for distress!"
I don't know where the writers got their material for that show. There was a LOT of bad, made-up stuff in that mini-movie. More stuff than good, I recall.
As far as I know, nothing went wrong with the rockets. They were the prescribed white socket rocets which were used to signal distress, and they worked just fine.
The arguement is over their being seen by the Californian and that ship, for whatever reason, did nothing about them.
