The Columbia Shuttle Tragedy has striking similarities to the 9-11attack. First, the time the tragedies occured. I caught both of them on TV as I entered home in the evenings (India time). The uninterrupted round-the-clock special coverage on CNN reminds me of the two continuous days I stayed glued to the TV watching the coverage of WTC crash. Both the tragedies are associated with flights, assuming that the shuttle to be an advanced plane. Thankfully, terrorism isnt one of the common features.
