Seven feared dead in space shuttle disaster
In case you haven't heard, the space shuttle Columbia appears to have broken up in flames over North Texas. It is feared that all seven crew members, six Americans and an Israeli, have been killed.
My heart goes out to the families of those brave men and women who piloted that ship. The press conference from NASA is due in about 15 minutes.
My idea (and I'm sure this will anger a bunch of people): Put some of the billions of dollars we put into NASA every year into education in the country. Then we'll be able to create better rocket scientists and engineers starting now so stuff like this won't EVER happen again. I remember seeing the Challenger explode when I was in elementary school and crying. This should never happen again. Ever. Put some money into education in this country so that it doesn't. Done ranting now, thanks for listening.
