Nasa flight safety panel quits: "All 11 members of Nasa's space flight security panel have resigned in the wake of criticism over the loss of the space shuttle Columbia earlier this year.

"The panel was created in 1967 after a fire broke out during preparations for the Apollo 1 space flight, when three astronauts died."


"The Columbia Accident Investigation Board (CAIB) said in its report on the disaster that the panel lacked influence."


In a letter to Nasa administrator Sean O'Keefe announcing the resignations, panel chairwoman Shirley McCarty said: "This will give you and the Congress the freedom to revitalise the panel and reshape its charter and mission."
