Mike Leinbach was the launch director at NASA when Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated during reentry on February 1, 2003. Joined by his Bringing Columbia Home co-author Jonathan Ward, Leinbach will talk about the search and recovery effort in the wake of the tragedy. Leinbach will share his first-hand account of how NASA, FEMA, the FBI, the US Forest Services and dozens more federal, state, and local agencies worked together to bring Columbia home and search for answers. 

This program is made possible through the generous support of Boeing.
