CARBON REINFORCED PANEL REMOVED FROM SHUTTLE WING SHOWN BEFORE TESTING. 
The leading edge of a carbon-reinforced panel removed from shuttle
Atlantis is show before investigative testing in which the shuttle
piece was struck by a piece of fuel-tank foam insulation shot out of a
35-foot nitrogen-pressurized gun, in San Antonio, Texas, 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 Gay/POOL
