It is tragic, I remember the last crash in 1989 when I was watching it launch while I was still in Cergy-Pontoise(outside of Paris). I hope for the best. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Oh my goodness :(
Seven dead and another major setback for both the space station and space flight in general :(
But obviously not an act of terrorism, according to http://www.time.com/time/nation/article ... 62,00.html

Terrible!
8 people on board, also with the first Israelian astronout.
My condoleance to every one who had contact with one of the people who were on the space shuttle.
