Collective Memory II

A dark day for science; on this day 5 years ago: 

The Columbia space shuttle explodes during re-entry in 2003.

Interesting read and round up on The Columbia Accident Investigation Board site.
Images above taken 4 days before reentry as it flew over Maui, Hawai. The STS-107 mission orbit photo's were taken by the U.S. Air Force Maui Optical and Supercomputing Site (AMOS).
