      Report of Findings: X-43A Mishap [pdf]
      http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/47414main_x43A_mishap.pdf

      Released on July 23, 2003, this report details the causes of the failure of
      NASA's X-43A flight vehicle. The mishap occurred in June 2001 and was
      immediately followed by the organization of an investigation board, which is
      the source of this document. An overview of the Hyper-X Program and X-43A
      mission are presented, describing the components and configuration of the
      vehicle. The report then identifies which systems failed, when they failed,
      and how they affected the vehicle's operation. Much of the report's contents
      are fairly technical in nature, but there are nonetheless some interesting
      insights into the unfortunate event that are suitable for a general
      audience. [CL]
