About two years ago I had posted a photo of some NASA Space
Mission patches that had come my way one way or another. This
Space Shuttle patch was my favorite as I loved the shuttle.
Around the same time I received the patches a family member gave
this ERTL brand die-cast shuttle to me. This is the Colombia. It launched
for the first time on mission STS-1 on April 12, 1981. Unfortunately, on
February 1, 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated over
Tyler Texas during reentry, killing all seven crew members:
