Why The Space Shuttle Was Doomed From The Start | Space Shuttle: The Human Time Bomb | Spark

This documentary investigates the 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. 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?
