Space Shuttle Columbia
It’s been a decade since seven astronauts aboard the space shuttle Columbia died in a fiery disaster over the state of Texas. NASA will honor those seven astronauts Friday to mark the 10th anniversary of the disaster.
For most of the past 30 years, NASA has etched memories into the minds of Americans with each of the 135 launches of the space shuttle program. From the iconic first flight, to the tragedies of Challenger and Columbia; everyone remembers something about the shuttle program.
