NASA RELEASES COLUMBIA CREW CABIN VIDEO
 
     Flight-deck video, taken by members of the Space Shuttle 
Columbia crew on Feb. 1, was released at 1 p.m. EST today 
on NASA Television. The videotape was recovered February 6 
near Palestine, Texas, during search and recovery efforts 
after the tragedy.  
 
The video is about 13 minutes long and shows flight-deck 
activity beginning about 8:35 a.m. EST as Columbia passed 
over the south central Pacific Ocean at an altitude of 
approximately 500,000 feet. It continues until approximately 
8:48 a.m. EST, when Columbia was over the eastern Pacific 
Ocean, southwest of the San Francisco Bay area. The video 
ends approximately 11 minutes prior to loss of signal between 
the orbiter and Mission Control.
 
Commander Rick Husband, Pilot Willie McCool, Mission 
Specialists Kalpana Chawla and Laurel Clark were on the 
flight deck during reentry. In the video, they can be heard 
conversing among themselves and working through routine 
checklist activities with flight controllers in Mission 
Control. 
 
Mission Specialists Mike Anderson and Dave Brown, and Payload 
Specialist Ilan Ramon were on Columbia's mid-deck during 
reentry. The video was shot with a small onboard camera 
mounted to the right of McCool, who then removes it and hands 
it to Clark for additional filming. 
 
NASA Television is on GE-2, transponder 9C, and vertical 
polarization at 85 degrees west longitude, 3880 MHz, with 
audio at 6.8 MHz.

investigation and NASA is available on the Internet at:
