The 10th Anniversary of the Shuttle Columbia Disaster: Worst Hoax Ever
|If you look closely, you can see Bigfoot in one of the windows.|
If you're thinking the photo looks a little, ummm, different from the usual space shots, you'd be right.
The images clearly show that the shuttle is still in orbit around the earth when the destruction occurs. However, Columbia was well into the Earth's atmosphere when it was destroyed. Moreover, Columbia did not explode as shown in the pictures but instead disintegrated over several minutes. Debris from the shuttle came to ground over a large area of the United States. If Columbia had exploded in orbit as shown in the images, no debris would have made it back to the planet surface.
What's more, the claim that a satellite just happened to be in exactly the correct position and alignment to gain such clear images of the shuttle's demise is probably even less believable than the highly improbable plot of "Armageddon".
We guess this means that the last thing the Columbia astronauts heard was Steven Tyler wailing "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" over their headphones.
