NASA presentation of STS 107 Left Wing Sensor Failures.
Report by Liam Kennedy -- 2/8/2003

As you may already know, many OCA Members are working in the space/science industry and some are very closely connected directly or indirectly with people woking in NASA or on the investigations team. Today I received an internal NASA powerpoint presentation (unclassified of course) which shows graphically when/where the sensors started showing abnormal readings (or gave up) on the left wing of the shuttle.

Note: In order to view the presentation you will need to be using Internet Explorer (probably version 6) ... sorry to all of you using Netscape.
