Remembering Columbia

It was 9 years ago today, that the shuttle Columbia broke apart during re-entry, minutes away from its scheduled landing.

Lost that day, (as pictured above, L to R) were: David M. Brown, Rick D. Husband, Laurel Clark, Kalpana Chawla, Michael P. Anderson, William C. McCool, and Ilan Ramon.

Today, we remember the crew of STS-107 and thank them for their service.


Remembering Apollo 1

Today marks 44 years since the tragic fire of Apollo 1, which claimed the lives of all three crew members.

We remember Command Pilot Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White II, and Pilot Roger B. Chaffee, who gave their lives then, so we can touch the stars today.
