3704Most fatalities during re-entryColumbia7 peopleNot Applicable, 01 February 2003On 1 February 2003, the space shuttle Columbia was lost with all seven crew during re-entry into Earth´s atmosphere after a successful 15-day mission in orbit. The resulting investigation determined that a piece of insulating foam from the external fuel tank had impacted the leading edge of a wing during launch. This made a hole that allowed heat to build up during re-entry, causing the left wing of the orbiter to break apart, and the rest of the spacecraft to disintegrate. The crew were Rick D Husband, William C McCool, David M Brown, Kalpana Chawla, Michael P Anderson, Laurel B Clark, Ilan Ramon (all USA except Ramon, Israel).
3705Most effective body armourBAE SystemsUnited Kingdom01 July 2010The UK defence company, BAE Systems, revealed, in July 2010, a revolutionary new type of body armour. The secret lies in a secret substance, likened to “bullet-proof custard”, properly named a “shear thickening fluid, because the molecules lock together and thicken when struck, in the same way that a custard sauce reacts when stirred. When coated on current body armour made up of ceramic plates and layered Kevlar, tests using 31 layers of untreated Kevlar and 10 layers of Kevlar combined with the secret liquid have shown that the Kevlar with the liquid reacts much faster and the impact is not nearly so deep. The advantage of this latest development is that body armour will be much lighter, more effective and allow soldiers much greater manoeuvrability in the future.
