VELOCIDAD DE ESCAPE
INTENTARON TOMAR EL CONTROLSegún parecen indicar las investigaciones, los astronautas del columbia intentaron tomar el control de la nave cuando se dieron cuenta de que todo iba mal pero el piloto automático se lo impidió:
Analysis of the final seconds of telemetry from the space shuttle Columbia show that the crew may have attempted to take control of the vehicle, but the orbiter's autopilot remained on. The analysis, released Sunday, showed that one of the hand controllers, or joysticks, may have been used by the crew in the final two seconds of telemetry recorded by ground stations. However, the data also revealed that the autopilot remained on during this time, making it unclear whether there was a deliberate effort by the astronauts to take command of the vehicle or if the controller was only accidentally engaged.
