Dreadfull news

Questions will no doubt be asked.

Interesting that the BBC news ticker rather plays down the events by saying "Nasa loses contact with shuttle."

Had it not been for this post I wouldn't have read the story. Lives have been lost here, will America be so ready to loose more in war?

What's far sadder is that the nameless wretches that they[and 'us']will be bombing hell out of in a few weeks time will be written off as 'collateral damage'.

Such a brave thing to do - and to end that way. Tragic!

Suprised it didnt happen earlier.pro rata the amount of astronauts per death is pretty low,considdering the risks involved.Hope no more are lost in the future,but the chances are if we go to war with iraq more british soldiers will be lost in an hour than the yanks have lost in the whole space program.Makes you think,dunnit?
pro brit ,anti yank war.If they want to fight iraq,let them.I thought we had birds in the bush.looks like this bush is hiding a cabbage.peace and love,[email protected]
