The close quarters of the Columbia space shuttle was not an approriate place for women to share with men.
Was sex in space one of the experiments the columbia crew performed? If so, the ones who were married committed adultery in space and the rest committed formnication and perhaps homosexuality. If that is so then they got what they deserved. Should those who help corrupt and introduce human depravity into space be regarded as heros?
Laurel Clark had an 8 year old son. She abandoned her son for the fleeting american dream.
The Columbia crew did not end up in heaven; they fell back from heaven
