On February 1st 2003, the crew of the STS107 mission were returning home from space on the Space Shuttle Columbia when tragedy struck. It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years. To mark this, we talk to Jonathan Ward, co-author of the brilliant book “Bringing Columbia Home” - the inside story of the disaster and the recovery and how the darkest hours can bring the best out of people.
