Lone Star

I’m back in Brighton.

I flew in last night from Dallas (following a short flight to there from Phoenix).

A few hours after the plane I was on left Texas airspace, the state was rocked by a huge bang. Shortly afterwards, pieces of debris began to fall.

This was all that remained of the space shuttle Columbia.

This is very, very sad.

What’s even sadder is that some of the debris appeared on eBay within minutes.
