If anyone's watching.............
I'm in shock and sad, frustrated and hurted as many of you may feel now. Who knows what happened up there in the re-entry.
The US is receiving big hits lately, so the rest of the people around the world that have dreams and do not feel boundaries between nations any more.
My most sincere condolences to the family of the tripulation of the Space Shuttle Columbia and to those involve in the space shuttle program.
OMG!!! OM Freakin' G!!! THIS IS TERRIBLE!!!
BTW, here is a link: Click Here
UPDATE: CNN has launched a full-coverage website on the Columbia Shuttle Disaster. Click Here.
That's really not good...
My elementary school was named after Christa McAuliffe, the first teacher astronaut. Our mascot was the 'Challengers'
After trying to recover from my shock...
I'm still in shock.
The video of the pieces falling to earth...that was a very, very sad sight. My prayers go out to the families of all seven astronauts on board.
Anyone see the video of the pieces...a very, very sad sight.
ya pretty bad. I have seen it go by twice, once in the day time and once at night. It really rips along (12,500mph) Just saw the footage on japanese TV, pretty shocking.
there must be crew on the ISS, they must be feeling pretty lonely right now.
and only a few days after the anniversary of the challenger disaster. and just noticed that the shuttle does not feature so big on Apples page.
My family is good friends with the McAuliffs. Father instructed pilots with her brother in law in Pansacola in 1985.
yeah that is a shame...
sad... sad... sad...
I watched the Challenger explode in 1986, and now this. We have been lucky since then, but neverless it is very tragic and shocking. The space shuttle is such a symbol of hope and when something like this happens, it shakes us out of our dreams into a horrible reality.
Guess that's gonna limit NASA doing anything big for a while... ugh...
7 people dead. Not good.
I was in Hawaii when the Challenger incident took place, which made it especially poignant, since one of the astronauts was a school teacher from my island.
My heart goes out to the families of those who lost their lives today.
by way of New Hampshire?
christa McCauliffe R.I.P.
Like Peter, I saw Challenger explode in 1986. To hear this terrible news brings back those horrible feelings I felt back then.
A truly tragic day - I'm devastated...
I too saw the Challenger explode. It really is amazing that events like this do not happen more often. Traveling into orbit in back is one of the most dangerous things that man can do but so far our precautions have done us very well. I am very saddened by the loss of the Columbia, there are so many feelings welling up reminding me of Challenger I just don't know exactly what to say. Why does such a minor even affect me so much? It's go to be the hopes and dreams that the shuttle program carries with it.
This is absolutely terrible. What other terrible things are going to happen?
I've been watching Today all morning, and I'm shocked. This is the first time a space shuttle has been lost on re-entry. I can't help but be worried about the future of NASA.
Just as a side note, Apple has removed the new Powermac and 20" Display from their homepage. You might recall that the display featured a picture of a space shuttle taking off (the 20" at the Powermac page still features the image).
My personal feeling is instead of cutting back NASA should run make some memorial missions in remembrance of the Columbia and it's crew.
I expect Apple will publish something in remembrance today.
With only 3 shuttles remaining, I think it is time for the US to think about what it wants to do. The vehicles are getting up there in age. It is time to think again of the future, while remembering the past.
Anyone else notice that the first debris found was in a Texas town called...Palestine!
As you know the first Israeli astronaut was on the shuttle. Man, I'm not religious but that really creeped me out.
Damn, this is going to have huge impact on the space program and pretty much sink the international space station. I wonder if they'll send up another shuttle to get the crew or the Russians will send their escape pod.
This is really a sad day.
And considering the violence of reentry, you really have to think what sort of life span these shuttles have. Was this a freak accident or was it preventable? Time to update the fleet to V 2.0 and get a whole new type. Maybe the space plane will be getting new funding.
Or maybe it will get its funding cut.
Most people just don't care for space travel, with the hopes of life on Mars all but gone. This accident could shut NASA down.
it's a national tragedy. it could not have happened at a worst time.
only three left. maybe it's time to give nasa some more funding.
