Watch the full episode of “Seconds from Disaster: Columbia’s Last Flight” from National Geographic where they present an in-depth investigation of the mishap of the Space Shuttle Columbia in 2003. The shuttle carrying seven astronauts disintegrated over Texas just 16 minutes from landing. Everybody on board died. Months of investigation led to conclusion that a small hole on a panel of one of the wind caused hot gases to enter the shuttle during its re-entry to the Earth’s atmosphere. Watch the video to learn more about the causes of this tragic end of the Space Shuttle Columbia, which was on its 113th space mission.
