Space shuttle explodes during reentry

The space shuttle Columbia exploded over Central Texas on its way back to its scheduled landing in Florida. Shuttle commander Rick D. Husband, pilot William C. McCool, payload commander Michael P. Anderson, mission specialists David M. Brown, Kalpana Chawla and Laurel Clark and Israel's first astronaut, Ilan Ramon, were on board. All seven are presumed dead.

Damn. Damn, damn, damn.

Rest in peace.
