NASA, NASA News, Extreme Weather Exposes Large Piece of Shuttle Columbia, Video

Extreme weather exposes pieces of Space Shuttle Columbia on dry lake bed

Recently I wrote about extreme weather being the new normal and this story goes right along with that post. Parts of the United States are experiencing severe drought, that drought has allowed parts of the Space Shuttle Columbia to be exposed in dry lake beds. For a link to the original post (which includes some fascinating  images) click here.

The lake bed that this piece of the shuttle was discovered in is down an astonishing 26 feet (8.5 meters).
Many deaths have been attributed the heat and the drought, as of today it shows no signs of letting up.
