    Default Bringing Columbia Home



    This book by Michael Leinbach (past Launch Director of Shuttle Program) tells the story of the tragic loss of the Columbia Space Shuttle on February 1, 2003. More importantly it tells the story of the thousands of individuals who worked tirelessly to recover the remains of the crew and the shuttle.

    "A valuable contribution about a defining moment that demonstrates NASA's resolve and the selfless generosity of the American spirit."

    Published in 2018, a must read for anyone interested in the US space program.

    "Sixteen Minutes from Home"...a video that was developed as a tribute to the lost Columbia crew: https://video.search.yahoo.com/searc...f&action=click.

    Hope some of you will take time to view it...
