Bringing Columbia Home: The Untold Story of a Lost Shuttle and Her Crew by Michael D. Leinbach, Cassandra Campbell (Narrator), Danny Campbell (Narrator)
My husband and I are space nerds. We grew up in the days of Apollo. We used to watch every shuttle launch and landing, so we were watching Feb. 1, 2003. The memories of that morning were with me as I read Bring Columbia Home. The book is a love story with the joy and heartbreak that have accompanied Human Space Flight. From the first realization that something had gone horribly wrong to the final answer of what caused the disaster, the book chronicles the meticulous work of the process of collecting and reconstructing the evidence (pieces). Through the entire book, the loss of seven humans was never forgotten. In October of 2015, we stood in front of the recovered windscreen of Columbia and the photos of the seven astronauts. Bringing Columbia Home is a thank you to all who helped with the recovery and a memorial to those lost in the exploration of Human Space Flight.
