Loss of Columbia
After more than 20 years of service, Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated
during re-rentry in the atmosphere, with a crew of seven astronauts
This disaster leaves one problem that the loss of Challenger in
1986 did not create: a crew of 3 astronauts in the International
Space Station wondering how they will be brought back. The previous
disaster grounded the shuttle fleet for 2 years ... in this case,
how will the ISS crew get back ?
It may be Russia to the rescue ...
