DUST FLIES DURING TEST ON A SPACE SHUTTLE WING IN SAN ANTONIO. 
Foam dust billows after a 1.67-pound piece of fuel-tank foam insulation
was shot out of a 35-foot nitrogen-pressurized gun and slammed into a
carbon-reinforced wing panel removed from shuttle Atlantis 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."
