The FBI said Friday it is investigating apparent sabotage of O-rings destined for space shuttle booster rockets, a problem that a NASA official said may have been motivated by a company incentive program. The defects were detected before any damaged rings were sent to the rocket maker. A "very small number" of O-rings that appeared to have been deliberately cut were discovered in June by the manufacturer, HydraPak Inc.

NASA officials revealed today that up to seven crucial O-ring seals used in space shuttle boosters appear to have been sabotaged earlier this summer but said the damaged seals never made it out of the factory and never threatened an actual flight.
