NASA INVESTIGATOR DAN BELL EXAMINES A 16-INCH HOLE ON A SHUTTLE WING
PANEL. 
NASA investigator Dan Bell examines a 16-inch hole seen in a
carbon-reinforced wing panel removed from shuttle Atlantis after a
1.67-pound piece of fuel-tank foam insulation was shot out of a 35-foot
nitrogen-pressurized gun and slammed into it during a test in San
Antonio, July 7, 2003. Engineers Monday found what they called the
"smoking gun" in the destruction of the Columbia space shuttle, a piece
of foam that struck the shuttle's left wing when it lifted off in
January. Scott Hubbard, a member of the Columbia Accident Investigation
Board, said a test carried out at the Southwest Research Institute in
San Antonio "demonstrates that this is in fact the most probable cause
creating the breach that led to the loss of Columbia." REUTERS/Eric
