Caption: Doomed shuttle mission patch. Mission patch from space shuttle mission STS-107, during which the shuttle Columbia exploded during re-entry, killing all seven astronauts. STS-107 launched on 16th January 2003 to perform scientific experiments in orbit. It was scheduled to land on 1st February 2003, but exploded as it entered the atmosphere. Debris was scattered across a large area of the southern USA, mainly in Texas and Louisiana. It is thought that a failure in the heat shielding may have led to the explosion. On board were mission commander Rick Husband, Michael Anderson, David Brown, Kalpana Chawla, Laurel Clark, William McCool and Ilan Ramon, the first Israeli in space.
