|A Tribute to Fallen Astronauts and Cosmonauts||
On Aug. 4, 2005, the STS-114 and Expedition 11 crews took time out of their schedule to pay tribute to all of the astronauts and cosmonauts who have given their lives for space exploration.
Wearing red shirts with the STS-107 patch, each crewmember provided words of tribute and remembrance in their native language -- English, Russian and Japanese.
STS-114 is the first Space Shuttle mission to fly since the loss of Columbia and the STS-107 crew. The STS-107 crewmembers -- Rick Husband, Willie McCool, Michael Anderson, Dave Brown, Kalpana Chawla, Laurel Clark and Ilan Ramon -- were lost when Columbia broke up over northern Texas during re-entry.
