To Our Pioneers

At approximately 1 o'clock this morning, Australian Eastern Daylight Time, contact was lost with the Space Shuttle Columbia sixteen minutes away from her scheduled landing as part of Flight STS-107. For reasons yet to be determined, she disintegrated midair over Texas. All seven crew died on board. Our thoughts go out to the families and friends of the crew, as well as the good people of NASA, who are even now looking for the accident's cause. Our hopes also go out to the worldwide space effort, whose uphill battle to get us to the stars has just become much steeper.
