Space Shuttle Tragedy

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 1:05 PM

If you haven't already heard, the Space Shuttle Columbia exploded or otherwise broke apart at about 9:00 a.m. EST this morning while attempting to return to Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

  • NASA and both have information on the tragedy.
  • The mission included the first ever space flight by an Israeli. In a sad bit of irony, the majority of the shuttle pieces that have been found have been located near Palestine, Texas.
  • Some have suggested the damage that lead to this may have occurred at launching when a piece of shielding from the rocket hit the shuttle.
  • The White House believes, due to the space shuttle's height at the time of the event, that it was not caused by terrorism.
