Apparently, at 9am, NASA lost contact with the Space Shuttle. Now it's 20 minutes past due for landing, and footage has been showed of flaming wreckage streaming across the Texas sky.

There is no hope of survivors.

Appearently it exploded just south of Dallas heading toward Tyler on it's way to Florida. We've been warned to watch for falling debris. I'll let you guys know if I find anything.

its no worse than a car accident that kills 8 people and the car accident only gets a 1 line blurb in the paper and everyone forgets a day later.

pon take off a chunk of foam hit the wing
they are now considering that it damaged the heat shield

the head shield basicly aves there ass's on re-entry it stops them form burning up (like they did)

there saying the shuttle entered in at proper trajectory

if a shuttle hits to steep it will burn up and if they hitnot steep enouhg and they will bounce into space.

a small scratch in the head shield canbe distructive

it would seem like the heat through that scratch burnt it up
***********************************

ok oin th eother side
ive allways be suspeicious ethey were up to something up there. on the moon or a station.
would thi snot be an easy way to fake deaths of some ppl so they can stay up there?
its a possibilitiy.

**********
any way.
another sad note in us history
I pray fo the lives lost. astronauts are hero's they do many things that help lots of ppl
its allways a shame to lose a hero.
