On February 1, 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated as it re-entered the atmosphere, killing all seven crew members. The disaster was the second fatal accident in the Space Shuttle program, after the 1986 breakup of Challenger soon after liftoff. During the launch of STS-107, Columbia's 28th mission, a piece of foam insulation broke off from the Space Shuttle external tank and struck the left wing of the orbiter.

And while space shuttle system has never managed to reach its goalsof quick turnaround and lower-cost launches, the spacecraft also represented amajor departure from NASA's capsule-based manned spacecraft. It was atotally different machine from what we were flying before," said Young, whoflew aboard NASA's Gemini and Apollo vehicles before STS-1, in an interview. Wehad about 23 guys in the Astronaut Office and they would have all killed to beon that first flight. If you lookedcarefully, out of the corner of your eye, in the cockpit, you'd be able to tellyou were aboard Columbia because of it had some extra panels and switches thatlater orbiters didn't have.

Space shuttle-see Orbiter . for Space Transportation System. NASA designated space shuttle missions as STS followed by a number. Terminal Countdown Demonstration Test (TCDT)-the unfueled dress rehearsal for a space shuttle countdown and launch. The crew was strapped into their seats in the orbiter while the launch team supported them from the Firing Room. Thermal protection system (TPS)-see Heatshield. Tiles-blocks of low-density, porous silica bonded to the skin of the space shuttle to protect it from the heat of reentry. More than twenty thousand tiles-each with a unique shape-were on each space shuttle.
