Redstone Complex Alabama

On October 31, 1980, a hydrogen explosion occurred in an auxiliary building at a test stand complex at the NASA Redstone complex in Alabama. The explosion destroyed two support buildings and severely damaged a large amount of equipment. Fortunately, no one was injured. Gaseous hydrogen leaked into one of the auxiliary buildings from a high pressure hydrogen gas system. The system piping was 88.9 mm (3.5 inch) outer diameter, carbon steel of 15.2 mm (0.6 inch) wall thickness meant to handle high pressures. The pipe had been attacked by galvanic corrosion on the outer wall for some time, thinning the wall to only 0.41 mm (0.016 inch) thickness.
