Space Shuttle Columbia Debris Found in Receded Texas Lake

| August 2, 2011 | Reply

It seems that there might be a bright spot to the recent drought in Texas. Though millions of acres are arid and dry, and even supposed tropical storms don’t drop any rain on the region, the NASA family is thankful. Uncovered in the city of Nacogdoches, in a lake that’s receded with the drought conditions, a piece of the space shuttle Columbia has been identified. The piece, positively identified by NASA as a tank that provided power and water for the astronauts, is about 4-feet in diameter, and is awaiting retrieval.

Hopefully this piece, and others that may be uncovered in the same area, will provide more pieces to the puzzle and help Columbia families with an additional ounce of closure after this national tragedy.
