Accident investigators yesterday revealed a new danger to the fleet of space shuttles but said they are not changing their theory surrounding the probable cause of the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegration.
Retired Navy Adm. Harold W. Gehman, head of the board, said investigators tested the explosive force in the charge that causes the bolts to come off and allow the solid rocket booster and external fuel tank to separate.
To do that, NASA may have to devote more funding to testing, Mr. Gehman said.
