NASA Dedicates Mars Landmarks To Columbia Crew NASA

NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe today announced the martian hills, located east of the Spirit Mars Exploration Rover’s landing site, would be dedicated to the Space Shuttle Columbia STS-107 crew. “These seven hills on Mars are named for those seven brave souls, the final crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia. The Columbia crew faced the challenge of space and made the supreme sacrifice in the name of exploration,” Administrator O’Keefe said.
