What of the others?
and what will happen to the recovered parts of Challenger and Columbia?
NASA reported that the crew of Challenger got 'vaporised' upon the explosion of the external fuel tank, unfortunately that was not the case. The crew compartment was intact and took just under 3 minutes to freefall back into the ocean. The astronauts, still strapped into their chairs hit the ocean at 200mph, which had a devestating crushing result for the compartment and it's contents. Human remains were found weeks later and recovered, together with the compartment. It is not known when the crew died, most were probably unconscious and died when they hit the water. It's worth noting that PEAP packs (personal air tanks) were activated, used for over 2 minutes and gated switches had been moved in the cabin post explosion.
Brevard County were not permitted to the autopsy of the remains, which is unusual and unlawful, their eventual public invitation was revoked shortly before it happened on a USAF base near to the Cape.
As for Columbia it's interesting to see the video of the cabin that was recorded during their re-entry. Normally this camera runs for the entire phase of re-entry, showing the cabin and crew. The recovered video runs normally but stops a few minutes before the break up.
NASA reported that the rest of the 'tape' was 'destroyed'...............really?
