Even through tragic moments that threatened to permanently ground the fleet, the Space Shuttle Program yielded remarkable innovations. As part of the investigation following the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, a Kennedy Space Center scientist developed a program to calculate the dimensions of objects in photographs. In 2008, DigiContractor Corporation of Tarzana, California, licensed the technology and incorporated it into online technology that can calculate measurements from photos for applications from construction and remodeling to landscaping to crime scenes and auto accidents.
