A hard drive recovered from the wreckage of the Space Shuttle Columbia was restored and the data was studied. The results of the study led to a paper being published on xenon gas behavior in microgravity.

The hard drive was a 400MB Seagate drive and 99% of the data was recovered.

The human cost of this study was extremely high, but at least something came from the restoration of this drive.
