"Mike Leinbach was the launch director of the space shuttle program when Columbia disintegrated on reentry before a nation's eyes on February 1, 2003. And it would be Mike Leinbach who would be a key leader in the search and recovery effort as NASA, FEMA, the FBI, the US Forest Service, and dozens more federal, state, and local agencies combed an area of rural east Texas the size of Rhode Island for every piece of the shuttle and her crew they could find. Assisted by hundreds of volunteers, it would become the largest ground search operation in US history. For the first time, here is the definitive inside story of the Columbia disaster and recovery and the inspiring message it ultimately holds. In the aftermath of tragedy, people and communities came together to help bring home the remains of the crew and nearly 40 percent of shuttle, an effort that was instrumental in piecing together what happened so the shuttle program could return to flight and complete the International Space Station. Bringing Columbia Home shares the deeply personal stories that emerged as NASA employees looked for lost colleagues and searchers overcame immense physical, logistical, and emotional challenges and worked together to accomplish the impossible. Featuring a foreword and epilogue by astronauts Robert Crippen and Eileen Collins, this is an incredible narrative about best of humanity in the darkest of times and about how a failure at the pinnacle of human achievement became a story of cooperation and hope."--Provided by publisher.… (lisätietoja)

This book goes into the nitty-gritty of search and recovery efforts after the Columbia accident, which was largely something I knew very little about. So very interesting about how individuals and representatives of government agencies and NASA pulled together to search a vast area to recover enough of Columbia so the debris could help in the accident investigation and to recover the crew and bring them back to their families.

I was volunteering at a homeless shelter with my fraternity on a cold February morning in 2003, and as we were cooking their meal, we noticed that all of the occupants had their eyes glued to the TV. I'm just too young to have remembered Challenger (I was only about a year and a half when it happened), but was just the right age to have the breakup of Columbia seared into my memory. I also remember going to a talk a few years later when I was a grad student from one of the CAIB members or advisors who presented about the incident, how they were able to gather evidence about the foam strike, and determine the cause of the breakup of the shuttle.

None of that is a review of the book. But if you weren't old enough to appreciate Columbia, you probably wouldn't understand why this book is so needed and appreciated by all of the people who gave it such high star ratings. I've struggled to understand why nobody did anything while Columbia was still orbiting and DO SOMETHING, and while this book didn't spend much time explaining why it wouldn't have been possible, it does, and it helps.

I think this book suffered from repeating itself too much at times, but it was really healing to read about how so many people came together to recover as much of Columbia and her crew as they could. I appreciated the openness, the candidness, and the emotion. ( )

**Bringing Columbia Home** is the story of the aftermath of the break-up of the Columbia shuttle, told by *Michael D. Leinbach* who was a launch manager at NASA and bore responsibility during the collection of Columbia and the ensuing review. I didn't really like the book – the author gave me the feeling that the book was more written for the people involved in the clean-up missions, both volunteers and professionals, than for an interested outsider like me. Some chapters feel more like a long list of names and their roles, to include everybody who did important work at the time, which was certainly important to those people, but at the same time a bit tedious. A bit of stylistic editing would have helped a lot here. I also felt that quite some things I'd be interested in (e.g. the concrete organizational consequences to change NASA feedback culture) were glossed over way too much.

But since Mr Leinbach dropped a lot of tiny interesting pieces of information and stories, and the subject matter is obviously fascinating, and I'm a nerd for both space and logistics, I still got some good moments out of it. If you're similarly inclined, then I'd recommend the book, but otherwise you'll probably come to the conclusion that knowledge of and dedication to the subject does not replace professional editing advice.

I remember when the space shuttle Columbia returned from its mission in 2003. Like most Americans, I was shocked and dismayed when the shuttle broke up during reentry and its remnants were scattered in areas of the southeastern United States. Leinbach provided information as to what caused the disaster, efforts to ensure that it could not happen again and a scenario as to what the astronauts experienced in the last moments of their flight.

The demise of the space shuttle Columbia is a depressing story. However the intense recovery efforts by NASA, various government agencies and private citizens to recover not only the remnants of the spacecraft but more importantly to find the remains of the dead astronauts is an uplifting one. Americans have a great history of banding together during tragedies and doing what is necessary to overcome them. This story is also covered here with amazing research and detail.

Two rescue workers lost their lives in trying to find and recover Colombia's remnants. Recovery was not an easy task and the courage and fortitude by thousands of volunteers is described in this book. I had not heard this story before – – we often hear of the bad things that Americans have done – – this is a story of one of the very courageous and humanitarian things that Americans have accomplished.
