no the spaceshuttle is designed to be able to land after a mission, so it can be used for another mission

saying that, if the cabin stays in 1 peice, then there could be a chance that the crew might be ok. (slim chance though)

Those guys are gone...


Columbia was about 23-24 years old, first shuttle with engines.

Wonder if it was pilot error, metal fatigue, or shoddy heat shields...

The chances are a grouping of the heatshield tiles has broken away during upper re-entry - this would stress the vehicle immensly

As soon as it got into the souper and thicker atmosphere those stresses would reach a critical point and cause complete failure/breakup

DAMMIT! this is the final nail in the coffin for the space program, and probably nasa. there are rumors that the space shuttle was bombed b/c the first isreali astronaut was aboard. shit...

Well, CNN suspects Al-Qaeda remnants, MSNBC thinks Hussein was the culprit, and FOX news believes that the North Koreans did it.
