Guys, guys, there is no reason for any of you to stoop down to $tranger's low life sick level, especially the mods or admins. He has just shown the board his true colours and how much of a pathetic moron he is with absolutely no common sense. We should just leave it at that. This is a great tragedy indeed, but I wouldn't suspect terrorism. All we can really do is give our condolences to the families of the lost and just wait and see why it exploded.

That must suck to hear the shuttle explode like that. I think the whole ordeal was just one bad accident, but nothing more. When you play with atmospheric fire at 12,500 mph, you're bound to get burned by it sometime or another. I only fear a waste of time and money "witch hunt" that always seems to follow these tragedies. They need to spend all of those resources on new shuttles (ones that aren't 20-30+ years old). They should also try to give to the families of the victoms. Instead, watch them waste millions on recovery, project delays, and court cases. This is where America fails, not in their efforts to bring us space exploration.

On a side note, those 2 objects flying next to it were pieces of debris, not "craft." War will not start over a shuttle mishap, but it will over a tyrant.

Just my 3 cents.

Why is everyone so inflamatory about other religions.

I mean, just live and let live, right.

Why is everyone all like "dang jew, hehehe" or "dang muslim, hehehe" or "dang baptist, hehehe." You must be so proud of yourself for making a racist comment.
Geez why bother.

It's funny.... We've never had a problem with re-entry until there was an isreali aboard.... Everything was going by the book's until it just exploded. I personally think that foriegn bastard did something.

Now there talking about a missle might have hit them from the air.... Well... They did see two bright objects on either side before it went boom... If it was a missle, it wasn't our's...

The space shuttle Columbia probably exploded Saturday at the time of its re-entry in the atmosphere, according to images' diffused by CNN.

Seven astronauts were on his board. The television channel diffused images showing of many white trails in the blue sky which could be remains of the shuttle in orbit. Several witnesses in addition affirmed to have heard the noise of a strong explosion.

NASA has on its side launched a warning counters remains of the shuttle which could be found in Texas. "If you are in this zone of Texas, it is necessary to remain well off any remains which could be dangerous because of the toxic substances employed like fuel of the shuttle",
a spokesman of NASA, James Hartsfield declared.

Condolences to he family and friends of the crew. This seems like a case of wear and tear. It would have endured incredible stresses over the last 20 years and finally gave in.

If it were to explode because of what happened 16 day's ago, it would've done it then. That isreali piece of # did something.... You don't go from a normal everything is ok mission, to all of a sudden BOOM 15 minute's before landing. That's bull. He did something, but they don't want us to know.

Please that's ridiculous, if you knew anything about engineering then you would realize the stresses aeroplanes and especially space shuttles go through.
What are you suggesting ? that the Israeli astronaut was a suicide bomber ? That's just plain idiotic.

E, I doubt he did it. I think towelheads did it because he was there. So it is his fault, but he never meant for it to happen, so not his fault.

Damn towel heads!

$tranger you are one sick a$$hole!!!!



Those people should be remembered; i saw the shuttle last night (through observation obscura in Edinburgh) and it was upside down, it looked great and i was glad that those people were doing something worthwhile in their lives instead of slanging people off!!!

You should watch your tounge! How do you think the astronauts families feel? It could have been one of your family!
Next time, use your brain first and you won't piss anyone off!

Most likely (I'm willing to be everything on it) the shuttle simply lost a key tile on re-entry, as stated below it's not uncommon for shuttles to lose tiles as they come in, but never until possibly now, have the most important tiles been removed during re-entry.

Anyways, none of this ever would have happend so "tragically" if it weren't for the skimpy ass space budget. A whimpy 8 billion dollars a year to manned space flight, when in the 60s an equivalent of 114 billion dollars a year was being put into manned missions.

The shuttles have been flying on a shoe-string budget ever since Challenger, it's amazing not all of them have blown up by now, considering every re-entry each shuttle sheds a bunch of its tiles like a snake its skin, and they must each be customly remade and replaced.

America and indeed the whole world needs to pay more attention to space exploration, it is our ONLY future, and it's struggling hard with all this lack of attention.

When everyone here went to bed most nobody knew who that Israeli was, it really is getting annoying that the only time the space program gets attention, is when it kills a bunch of people, then everyone is shocked "Ohhh nooo" not because it is indeed a dangerous business and every death is a step backwards, but because most of the people didn't even know the damn shuttle was up there.

Sincerely,

Columbia had an Israeli astronaut and she exploded over Palestine and Swath Town, in Texas.


Palestine ?????????????????


Probably " just " another sad coincidence !

my condolences go out to the families as well. What if it's part of a larger conspiracy to boost the space budget, to get the star wars program, or the son of star wars program off the ground? just my two cents
