Columbia Space Shuttle Destroyed

Nasa lost contact 15 minutes before it was to land and debris was seen falling over Texas.

RIP all seven crew members.

Godspeed to the brave starship crew.

I still remember the shock at losing 'Challenger'. Such is the price we must pay to further mankind's great adventure.

Heroes all.


'We drew a line in the sand. No one would kick sand in our faces again!' G.P.

EF Fairmont Ghia, Bordeaux Purple, 5.0 Windsor, Crane cam, ChipTorque modded ECU, full XR bodykit, 16 inch XR8 alloys, 2.5 inch dropped Tickford suspension, full grey leather trim with chrome, woodgrain and lots of lights, climate control, ABS, Premium sound, trip computer, power everything

I can't get enough of this!

Very sadening.
Goes to show just how dangerous space travel is, which we all forget when it goes smoothly.
My thoughts echo V8 Ghia Mike's also.
