Transcript Shuttle Columbia TRAVEGYSTRIKES OUR SAVVENEV NATION, AGAIN When Houstonians went to bed Friday, January 31, 2003, they could not have imagined the scene that greeted them with the rise of the sun the next morning. On Saturday, February 1, 2003, all of America was shocked at the bright streak across the Texas sky that took the lives o seven astronauts (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). There were no survivors. What did not burn in the descent landed in and around Palestine, Texas, where workers began to search for survivors immediately despite the belief that the crew had no chance of survival. According to FoxNEWS on Sunday, February 2003, only a few hours after the explosion pieces of the shuttle began showing up for sell on eBay, and were later pulled by eBay. February 8, The Houston Chronicle, reported one such story from Stephen Proctor, an unemployed software developer. "I've sold three shuttle patches in recent weeks and the most one went for was $4.95. I put one up for bid this morning and in an hour or two it had reached $255. It's ridiculous." Proctor later removed the patches from bidding on eBay, saying, "I realized it was the wrong thing to do, I didn't want to be part of all that mongering," said Proctor President Bush, churches, and individuals around the country mourned the deaths of the seven astronauts and observed a moment of silence in their memory. President Bush, in his address to the nation regarding the disaster, remarked on the courage of the astronauts. "These men and women assumed great risk in the service to all humanity. 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," said President Bush. -Richard Whitrock GEORGE BUSH Bush speaks to mourners at the Memorial service held February 2, 2003 at NASA Many were reminded of the first shuttle explosion, the Challenger inFebruary 198b which was credited to a fuel leak. , -Laurie Novasad
