CNN: Tragedy over Texas

Columbia Flies!The space shuttle Columbia flying as Mission STS-107 didn’t make it home this morning. Columbia appears to have disintegrated over Texas at an altitude of 200,000 feet.

My heart grieves with the families of the brave souls on-board Columbia. In addition to their professional skills and responsibilities, three of them also were amateur radio operators.

For many years, I had a poster on the wall of Columbia’s first ever shuttle launch. Titled “Columbia Flies”, it was a most inspiring image.
