The launch of Space Shuttle Columbia was planned to begin on
January 11, 2001, but the mission was delayed 18 times and
eventually launched on January 16, 2003 (above).  

During the lift-off of Columbia’s 28th mission, a piece of foam
insulation broke off from the Space Shuttle’s external tank and
struck the left wing of the craft. An accident investigation board determined the damage to the wing allowed hot atmospheric
gases to inter the heat shield, destroying the internal wing
structure and caused the spacecraft to become unstable and
break apart upon re-entering Earth’s atmosphere on February
1, killing all seven crew members.
