Publisher's Summary

February 1, 2003. A light flashed over a Texas sky and twisted metal rained across the countryside. As images of the wreckage from the Space Shuttle Columbia streamed across the nation's television screens, they became forever burned into our memories. But behind those images were stories that remained untold...until now.

This story, High Calling, is the stirring portrait of Rick Husband, commander of the Space Shuttle Columbia. His widow, Evelyn Husband, leads you on Rick's journey from a childhood dream, through the heart of the American space program, and into the vastness of space itself.

As you experience the events leading up to the final, tragic moments of the Columbia, you'll be inspired by teh faith of Rick Husband. For it is his faith that powerfully transforms this account of heartbreaking loss into a very different story; one of courage, hope, and triumph.

This audio includes President Bush's remarks at the NASA memorial service.
