New book: Columbia Crew Survival Investigation Report

deposicn.gifOn February 1st, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia STS-107 was returning to Earth after several weeks in space. Disaster struck and the shuttle disintegrated upon re-entry over Texas, and all seven crew members were lost.

We have just received NASA's Columbia Crew Survival Investigation Report from the U.S. Government Printing Office as part of our Federal Depository Library collection.

You can read this report at the State Law Library, or you can get the report online. The report analyzes every component of this tragic event, including structural malfunctions and crew training.

We also have the 2003 Columbia Accident Investigation Board Report in our collection, and it too is available online.

If you're interested in more information, NASA maintains a website dedicated to the Columbia, including crew member profiles, news reports, and records released under the Freedom of Information Act.
