Michael Ciannilli manages the Columbia Research and Preservation Office and directs NASA’s Apollo-Challenger-Columbia Lessons Learned Program. Ciannilli takes every new employee at Kennedy Space Center through the room housing Columbia’s debris. It is a sobering reminder of the potential danger of manned spaceflight. Credit: Jonathan H. Ward
