NASA still does not rule out the possibility of sabotage - "sabotage" as they say that caused the Coulomb accident

However, there is no evidence for this and it is only one of many hypotheses being tested


The investigation team for the Columbia disaster is trying to narrow down the hypotheses to the question of what caused the hole in the aluminum side of the Columbia - which allowed extremely hot gases to penetrate the left wing and destroy the spaceship.
The researchers said that a cut or a certain type of breach may have been responsible for the damage to the spacecraft. The investigative team is looking at a variety of possible reasons for this cut. One of the reasons raised from the beginning of the investigation is that the shuttle was hit by a hard piece of insulating foam from the external fuel tank that fell during the launch.
Last Friday, flight director Leroy Cain said the pieces of foam came to mind on Feb. 1 in the final minutes when it was learned that sensors on the shuttle's left wing had broken as the shuttle glided toward Florida. We knew about it but we didn't think that this would mark the end of the shuttle and its crew.
Like the other possibilities for the disaster, sabotage - as the news agencies put it - was not out of the question, said the chairman of the investigation team, Harold Gehman. "Any delay, anything intentional or any natural damage is included in our mandate to investigate, just like anything else. "said". Everything is on the table.
