Space shuttle Columbia breaks up in descent


— 11:22 AM on February 1, 2003

Sad news this Saturday morning, as the first space shuttle apparently broke up on re-entry, likely killing the crew onboard. Videos of the accident show a large piece of the shuttle breaking into smaller pieces and burning up. Eyewitnesses in Texas apparently heard "a big bang," and small pieces of debris are already being discovered outside Dallas.
