Many years ago I had a college professor who, on our first day of class, asked: "What event happened in the year 1066?" His point was that it is meaningless to memorize bits of information.
I said The Battle of Hastings...
He said nobody had ever been able to answer that question in the 20 years he'd been teaching and asked how or why I knew that. I had no answer.

i meeeaan, not trying to downplay but, thats what he had to remember?
It's unlikely you or I could even learn all the poo he knew let alone remember something from a year prior whilst looking over shuttle info that wasn`t even in his part of the job. Hell, I have trouble remembering the name of a song ten minutes after I`ve heard it even if loved it and tried. So ya, 1/1,000,000 or smaller shot to save the mission and he nailed it.
