This documentary investigates the recent tragedy, exploring the true reasons why the orbiter Columbia so catastrophically exploded as it re-entered the Earth’s atmosphere, 200,000 feet above the skies of Texas last month. Six American astronauts and Israel’s first spaceman died when their spaceship literally broke up around them.Was it a genuine one-off disaster or an accident waiting to happen? This programme reveals the truth about the Space Shuttle – it goes beyond the immediate technical failures of flight STS-107 and uncovers the real truth about the sacrifices made in the Space Shuttle design almost three decades ago.
