I'm afraid to inform everyone that it appears the shuttle broke apart shortly after re-entry. Mission control lost radio contact and radar positioning around 9:00am ET this morning. Witnesses say they saw what appeares to be debris breaking apart over Texas. The shuttle was approximately 200.000 feet at last contact. There were 6 Americans and 1 Israeli onboard. This is a tragic loss for the United States, NASA and the family's that lost loved ones. My condolences go out to their families.

Can blind people be dyslexic when they read Braille?

That was the big news at the race today...unbelievable. I hope Morton Thiokol had nothing to do with it this time.

I found out while we sat in line staging to start the mdr race. It was hard to think about it while we were racing. We will remember this day forever.
