A weather radar shows the debris swath as the shuttle broke apart. Click here

1715 GMT (12:15 p.m. EST)

Debris is scattered across a wide area of Texas. NASA is asking that any persons finding debris should stay clear given the hazardous nature of the materials and alert local authorities.

1710 GMT (12:10 p.m. EST)

Here is the NASA statement:

A Space Shuttle contingency has been declared in Mission Control, Houston, as a result of the loss of communication with the Space Shuttle Columbia at approximately 9 a.m. EST Saturday as it descended toward a landing at the Kennedy Space Center, Fla. It was scheduled to touchdown at 9:16 a.m. EST.

Communication and tracking of the shuttle was lost at 9 a.m. EST at an altitude of about 203,000 feet in the area above north central Texas. At the time communications were lost. The shuttle was traveling approximately 12,500 miles per hour (Mach 18). No communication and tracking information were received in Mission Control after that time.

Search and rescue teams in the Dallas-Fort Worth and in portions of East Texas have been alerted. Any debris that is located in the area that may be related to the Space Shuttle contingency should be avoided and may be hazardous as a result of toxic propellants used aboard the shuttle. The location of any possible debris should immediately be reported to local authorities.

Flight controllers in Mission Control have secured all information, notes and data pertinent to today's entry and landing by Space Shuttle Columbia and continue to methodically proceed through contingency plans.

More information will be released as it becomes available.

1700 GMT (12:00 p.m. EST)

The NASA news conference by Administrator Sean O'Keefe is planned for 1 p.m. EST.

" . . . it looks like we lost another shuttle crew".

Almost my exact words when I woke up my son...

ditto here.
called wife at her office first, then told the oldest boy, who was upstairs getting ready for work ...

The location of the "streak" depends on where the radar was located. This shot appears to be centered in Austin. I've locally seen a shot of Houston's radar. The other threads have had a shot from Dallas based radar.

I heard a comment from the mayor of Fairfield about the event (they were keeping an eye out for debris, I think I heard that they did see the incident). Fairfield is about halfway between Houston and Dallas.

"What a very weird coincidence that the one time I sit down to watch a shuttle landing, this happens."

Not a good day for the USA. But I am curious nevertheless. Did you only sit down one time to watch the Oakland Raiders play football?

Thanks to the brave men and women put their lives on the line every day to make this world a better place.
I said it earlier but I wish to say it again.
I hope and pray that the deaths of Columbia and it's crew is a beginning not a end.
The beginning of more exploration of space, the beginning of a new spaceship that will be able to make a low earth orbit something more routine then we have today.
It has been too long since man set foot on the moon. I pray the President Bush makes a effort to give America the first big push to space travel so more people can look upon the beautiful world God created.
I want a bricklayer, a secetary, a accountant, a mechanic, ect, to fasten his seat belt and hold on for the ultimate amusement ride.
America needs some good goals to achieve.

If that had been to the west, all of the debris would have been hitting downtown Dallas (where I live). Here's a local news clip.

What a chilling and tragic thread! Eyewitnesses to history. What started out as a routine viewing of the shuttle changed in moments to terrible despair.

May all seven aboard rest in peace.

(BTW...this thread is reminiscent of the radio reports on the VonHindenberg disaster, decades ago.)

FROM REUTERS----


Iraqis Call Shuttle Disaster God's Vengeance
Sat February 1, 2003 02:08 PM ET
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Immediate popular reaction in Baghdad on Saturday to the loss of the U.S. space shuttle Columbia and its seven-member crew -- including the first Israeli in space -- was that its was God's retribution on Americans.
"We are happy that it broke up," government employee Abdul Jabbar al-Quraishi said.

"God wants to show that his might is greater than the Americans. They have encroached on our country. God is avenging us," he said.

Car mechanic Mohammed Jaber al-Tamini noted Israeli air force Colonel Ilan Ramon was among the dead when the shuttle broke up shortly before its return to earth.

"Israel launched an aggression on us when it raided our nuclear reactor without any reason (in 1981), now time has come and God has retaliated to their aggression," Tamini said.

Text of president Bush's speech on loss of Columbia.

My fellow Americans, this day has brought terrible news and great sadness to our country. At 9:00 a.m. this morning, Mission Control in Houston lost contact with our Space Shuttle Columbia. A short time later, debris was seen falling from the skies above Texas. The Columbia is lost; there are no survivors.

On board was a crew of seven: Colonel Rick Husband; Lt. Colonel Michael Anderson; Commander Laurel Clark; Captain David Brown; Commander William McCool; Dr. Kalpana Chawla; and Ilan Ramon, a Colonel in the Israeli Air Force. These men and women assumed great risk in the service to all humanity.

In an age when space flight has come to seem almost routine, it is easy to overlook the dangers of travel by rocket, and the difficulties of navigating the fierce outer atmosphere of the Earth. These astronauts knew the dangers, and they faced them willingly, knowing they had a high and noble purpose in life. Because of their courage and daring and idealism, we will miss them all the more.

All Americans today are thinking, as well, of the families of these men and women who have been given this sudden shock and grief. You're not alone. Our entire nation grieves with you. And those you loved will always have the respect and gratitude of this country.

The cause in which they died will continue. Mankind is led into the darkness beyond our world by the inspiration of discovery and the longing to understand. Our journey into space will go on.

In the skies today we saw destruction and tragedy. Yet farther than we can see there is comfort and hope. In the words of the prophet Isaiah, "Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."

The same Creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today. The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth; yet we can pray that all are safely home.

May God bless the grieving families, and may God continue to bless America.

My best friend lives in the Bay Area and she and her hubby went out early to see the shuttle pass over. At 630 she called me and told me to turn on the television. She was so upset after just having seen the shuttle pass over. She is also a former employee of NASA.

Thank you for your contribution to history today.

Were it not for this wonderful and amazing forum, such would not be possible. Freepers are the best; so much knowledge and intelligence distilled into one place.

Leadpenny posts a seemingly ho-hum post about the shuttle over San Francisco, which interests me. Then I am at NASA-TV awaiting the touchdown which never happened. All the while, reacting with the Freeper family.

Shameless beg: If FR has been a valuable resource this day, consider becoming a monthly donor, so it is always here for us.

"High Flight"

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.


High Flight was composed by Pilot Officer John Gillespie Magee, Jr., an American serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was born in Shanghai, China in 1922, the son of missionary parents, Reverend and Mrs. John Gillespie Magee; his father was an American and his mother was originally a British citizen.

He came to the U.S. in 1939 and earned a scholarship to Yale, but in September 1940 he enlisted in the RCAF and was graduated as a pilot. He was sent to England for combat duty in July 1941.

In August or September 1941, Pilot Officer Magee composed High Flight and sent a copy to his parents. Several months later, on December 11, 1941 his Spitfire collided with another plane over England and Magee, only 19 years of age, crashed to his death.

His remains are buried in the churchyard cemetery at Scopwick, Lincolnshire.

This maybe just speculation from SpaceflightNow but:

Debris appeared to strike wing on launch
Posted: February 1, 2003

Launch event

This animated image shows two frames of video from shuttle Columbia's launch on January 16. A white puff between the orbiter's left wing and external fuel tank (circled) appears to be a piece of debris that struck during the climb to orbit. In a pre-landing briefing entry flight director Leroy Cain said engineers "took a very thorough look at the situation with the tile on the left wing and we have no concerns whatsoever

Columbia Discussion thread ^
      Posted by winodog to Yaelle
On News/Activism ^ 02/01/2003 1:30 PM EST #593 of 900 ^

Columbia left a huge contrail behind it. I watched it fly over the vegas valley. I saw one bright red spot in the middle of the huge bright light that I assumed must be the ship itself. Then the entire "glow" of the ship seemed to diminish for a second.
I did not think much of either things at the time but it was right after this that they lost communication.

The time they say they lost contact would fit that scenerio but I was not paying real close attention.
I did notice that one spot seemed brighter then the rest.
Another thing seemed strange. After it passed overhead it seemed to lose the "glow". At the moment I thought it must have something to do with it having passed over but it "brightened" back up.
It would appear something was wrong before it got to Dallas area.
I must go do some work for a couple hours. I will check back in soon.
Again prayers for all involved, including our soldiers around the world.

Leadpenny, I have been harping the virtues of FR to a friend of mine (he usually groans and mentions that this stuff is boring). I used your thread as an example of how fast FR is at getting the news and how people (Texas in this case) report so you get a first hand look at the news as it happens without the liberal spin. There is no better proof of FR's greatness that you thread. It was just perchance that you hit a news story on the head, but you did.

FR rocks because people like you share your news. There is no better source of news IMHO.

I try to write to my elderly mother on a frequent basis. In each letter I close with a prayer. I wanted to share today's with you now.

Our Beloved Heavenly Father, Our Lord Christ Jesus,

We come before you now and beseech you to please care for the souls of these precious ones in our space program who gave their lives in the quest for greater knowledge of the Cosmos which you created. Take these precious souls in your arms and place them gently into the highest places in your Mansion that you possibly can. Heal their souls of any wounds which the trauma may have caused them. Comfort their souls as they leave behind their friends and families.

Hold their friends and families close to your heart and give them legions of comfort angels. Help them to find strength in you during this period of intense raw pain. Help their families gracefully adjust to the changes in dynamics which occur when we lose dear ones. Protect these ones who are very much in the public eye. Let them know that we CARE about them. Guide the media personnel in their efforts to gain stories for those of us who do care. Let them be sensitive to the pain of these precious souls who have lost so much while those stories are gathered.

Father, we pray for the people in the space program who were involved in this mission. We ask that you will guide them in finding out the root cause/s so that any future reoccurence may never happen again. We further ask that you will enlighten people who find debris as to the importance of it being turned in to authorities. One just never knows which little bit might spell the key for us to understand the disaster. Please Lord, if there is such a piece or pieces, please let them be found and turned in by unselfish citizens.

Father, we ask for your mercy and care not only for the souls involved in this national tragedy, but for any and all who have given their lives wearing our military uniforms. We have had recent helicopter crashes and other incidents where we have lost soldiers. Father, we include them and their families in our prayers. We continue to pray for all of our military who are actively serving in any capacity, and their families.

Father, guide all of our leaders in their decisions which are needing to be made. Especially give our President grace and wisdom in his decisions to deploy our forces. We pray and trust that whenever he bows his head in prayer, which he has indicated he does do, that he will have an extraordinary ablility to hear Your words and guidance. We support him and lift him up in our prayers and are grateful that you have allowed us to have in office one who does sincerely believe and depend upon the arm of the Lord. We would ask that each and every person in office or who is in a leadership and decision-making capacity also have an extraordinary ability to hear heavenly guidance when they bow their heads in prayer. We are in a very crucial time in many levels and many fronts, Lord, and we have never needed your intercession more. Grant us that intercession, our Father! Grant us the vision as a united people that we need in order to allow your own divine plan for our nation and civilization to be made manifest.

Father, we place all of this upon the altar and we give gratitude and praise to you that you do indeed hear and answer our prayers. We ask that all of our prayers will be adjusted according to thy will, for we do not wish to pray amiss in any way whatsoever. In the name of the Everlasing Word,

Amen

Well, last night I went to http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/realdata/groundtracs to make sure I had the correct time for it passing over my area. I live high up in the Sierra Nevada mountains in Central California. The kids and I go out there this morning and the big beautiful fireball trailing a plume of smoke goes by amazingly fast right on schedule at around 5:55. I tell the kids in just 20 minutes it'll be on the ground in Florida. Think about going inside and turning on the tv to watch it land, but go back to bed instead. Wake up and turn on the news later - what a horrible sick feeling! God Bless those 7 precious souls...
