Farewell Columbia

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.

A story here claims that they knew the shuttle was unsalvagable and that reentry was impossible--but that so was rescue.

What to do? Suffocation or a hell-bent-for-leather reentry?

Who knows?

We all know the possible price one pays "to wear the Star Fleet uniform." And all those who took that flight knew the risk.

But still.

God love and rest them.
