National Day of Remembrance: On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia broke up during re-entry, killing all seven of its crew members. A remembrance ceremony was conducted in Texas earlier this morning, as today marks the 8th Anniversary of the loss of STS Columbia, which comes on the heels of the 25th Anniversary of the STS Challenger disaster which was on 28 January.
