 May 14, 2003 --- A piece of space shuttle external tank foam strikes a portion of a main landing gear door during a Columbia Accident Investigation Board test at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. The test was one of a series that occurred in early May 2003 as part of the investigation into the cause of the Space Shuttle Columbia accident. The materials being tested are positioned so the foam strikes at a range of angles and velocities.

 (July 7, 2003) -- A piece of Space Shuttle external tank foam strikes an area of a Space Shuttle wing during a test at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. The July 7 event was one of an ongoing series of tests being conducted in 2003 as part of the investigation into the cause of the Space Shuttle Columbia accident. The video shows the same test from several different angles as the foam penetrates a Reinforced Carbon-Carbon panel, creating a hole 41 centimeters by 41 centimeters (16 inches by 16 inches).
