Columbia Space Shuttle Tragedy

Did anyone catch the PBS retrospective on the loss of the Columbia in 2003? I've watched it twice and thought it was pretty good. There is more information at NOVA | Space Shuttle Disaster | PBS as well as some additional information and podcasts. When it comes back on I'd recommend it, quite well done. I particularly enjoyed Rodney Rocha's segments, he was trying to get them to look at possible damage while it was still in orbit, but they refused to allow him to look at other images or to try to get more information about it. Very interesting tale about a cassette tape they found, too.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
