SDO: NASA: NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
Description of Driving Event:
The Challenger (Space Shuttle Flight #51L) accident triggered a detailed review of all of the joints in the Solid Rocket Motor. Analyses showed a potential weakness and potential flow paths for hot gasses through the case-to-nozzle joint that could cause a catastrophic event similar to that encountered in Challenger.
