NASA Mission STS-107, Columbia Space Shuttle, Flight 117 in 2003 killed seven ( 7 ) astronauts whom were already in trouble, and this image proves their air-lock breach between the crew cabin and payload bay area where all that stood between them entering Earth's ionosphere was flimsey 'medical tape' used as a seal to withstand pressure, heat and speed. Report:

David McDowell Brown (April 16, 1956 – February 1, 2003) was a United States Navy captain and a NASA astronaut. He died on his first spaceflight, when the Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-107) disintegrated during orbital reentry into the Earth's atmosphere. Brown became an astronaut in 1996, but had not served on a space mission prior to the Columbia disaster.
