A HISTORY OF ANTI STATIC FILM In the mid 60's an Apollo Command Module blew up on the ground at Cape Kennedy and killed the three Astronauts within, and injured many others and destroyed the space lab. The spark that caused the ignition resulting in the fatal accident reportedly could have been caused by a static discharge from polyethylene sheeting used as a dust cover as it was being unrolled in the vicinity of the capsule. This accident is one of the factors that prompted the development of anti static film for government and commercial applications.
