And finally, today, my condolences to the families of the seven Columbia crewmembers who lost their lives today. You are in my thoughts.
Here is a website containing quotations from astronauts, observations about what they saw when they were in space. Several of the Columbia crewmembers were first-timers, so we won’t be blessed with knowing their reaction to their first (and only) space flight.
May you rest in peace.
