On January 25 th NASA honored the fallen space shuttle astronauts named Columbia, who met a disastrous fate about 15 years ago by killing everyone on board. The space agency organized an event to honor the dead that was followed by a musical tribute built by the heir of Israel's first astronaut.
The venue of the event was at the Kennedy Space Center, where Tal Ramon, a songwriter and singer, joined many others to remember the team and many other astronauts who were killed during their service while serving in the space agency. The Columbia Space Shuttle was shattered in the Texas sky a few minutes before landing in Florida. This disastrous event took place on February 1 st in 2003. The seven astronauts who died on the space shuttle included Ilan Ramon, Kalpana Chawla and others.
Ramon's son had two songs written in homage to the dead man who was in the Hebrew language he played on the keyboard. After this, Ramón along with the families of the astronauts who were killed during the mission showed their honor by placing orange, pink and yellow roses in the monument designed in a granite monument with 24 engraved names.
Before Ramon began his performance, he told the crowd that he was very excited to be here with the crowd remembering his father. The event also featured a forest ranger named Gregory Cohrs. He was one of the first people who arrived at the scene of the tragedy and worked approximately three months searching the area in search of debris. It was also an overwhelming experience for him. Currently, he is employed in the Kisatchie National Forest located in Louisiana.
NASA honored the 24 who died in three different accidents. The first was Columbia, the second was the fire disaster of Apollo 1 and the last but not least disaster of the Challenger Shuttle. Seven more included an air crash while training or any other business during official work.
