Ten Years

Ten years ago, I was sleeping late on a Saturday morning, when I was awakened by a loud sound outside. I had no idea what it was. As soon as I turned on a TV, I found out:

I'm an alumnus of the University of Texas at Arlington. Our Master of Science program in Aerospace Engineering boasts two graduates who've flown in space, and I've met both of them. One is Robert Stewart, and the other was Kalpana Chawla.

And I find that I really can't say anything else about it. This one hurt.

Godspeed, Columbia.

All of them were brave guys who dedicated their lives for the cause of space missions. Kalpana wiil be remembered as the most accomplished woman of Indian origin in the field of science, technology and space research. India is proud of her achievements. She will be a role model for hundreds of Indian women. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
