The tragedy of February 1, 2003 will not be soon forgotten. Many have speculated about video existing during the final break up of Columbia while others wonder what the crew was going through.

I wondered on to the Freedom Of Information Act Request section of a NASA web site relating the the Columbia Accident and have, unfortunately found what does sound like a panic-stricken transmission. A short "yelp" followed by "popping" noises and then the panic filled transmission. More popping and static ending with a transmission from Rick Husband, "And Houston..." Even more disturbing is the part not heard on other NASA videos that the crew reported flight control problems.

Since this is audio on a very particular audio loop in mission control, it does not contain the absolute final message, "Roger, uhhhh..."

The original 58 minute audio loop (shown by the GMT stamp on intro) is no longer available from NASA but they did have this condensed version which is othwerwise uncut or altered except for volume and the removal of the last 15 or so seconds which has nothing on it at all.

Help is appreciated if anybody can understand the panic transmission. I would like to get it annotated for all.
