On February 1, 2003, the crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia STS-107 gave their lives in their final mission to benefit mankind.

This monument serves as a reminder to the World of the sacrifices made by the NASA Crew and their families, as well as the unity, dignity and compassion Sabine County quietly offered the World.
