NASA is still seeking help from the American public to supply video
and still images of the Space Shuttle Columbia on its return flight to
Earth. There has been a great public response, but more material will
help the investigation of the Columbia accident.

Columbia glided across the western U.S. just before sunrise Saturday,
February 1. The Shuttle flew just north of San Francisco around 6:50
a.m. PST and broke up over eastern Texas around 8:00 a.m. CST. Any
imagery, especially video, of the Shuttle’s path might aid the Columbia
Accident Investigation Board in determining the cause of the accident.

Media and private citizens who have video or still images of Columbia’s
entry path are encouraged to send it to investigators. Videotapes and
photos will not be returned. For more information call:

Johnson Space Center Emergency Operations Center (Phone: 281/483-3388)
