RETURN TO FLIGHT CREW REFLECTS ON COLUMBIA'S LOSS
The astronauts who will fly the next Space Shuttle mission remember the Columbia crew in a new series of interviews on NASA Television Tuesday. Crewmembers also relate their motivation for the Return to Flight mission (STS-114).
The STS-114 crewmembers are Commander Eileen Collins, Pilot Jim Kelly, Mission Specialists Soichi Noguchi, Steve Robinson, Andy Thomas, Wendy Lawrence and Charlie Camarda. Their comments air in a NASA TV Video File beginning at noon EST Tuesday and will air at three-hour intervals throughout the day.
