Failure Analyst Identifies Cause of Columbia Disaster
On February 1, 2003, all seven crewmembers of the Colum-bia shuttle mission STS-107 lost their lives when their wounded craft disintegrated 39 miles above Texas. Current thought points to damage caused to heat tiles on the underside of the shuttle's left wing during the Jan 16, 2003 launch.
Since then, the Columbia Accident Investigation Board (CAIB) has ordered NASA to revamp the makeup of its own internal investigation because of the suspicion that NASA managers could skew their findings so as not to destroy careers as well as vital space programs.
