The Columbia Memorial Space Center is a hands-on learning center that is dedicated to bringing the wonder and excitement of space science to children of all ages. We also serve as the national memorial for the Space Shuttle Columbia’s seven crew members, lost in 2003. Located in Downey, California, we strive to be the most accessible space science center in the Los Angeles area.
I worked at Rockwell International in my past life and spent about 3 years in Downey so revisiting the Museum brings back many memories. I was working for Rockwell the day Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on January 28, 1986, when Space Shuttle Challenger (mission STS-51-L) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members.
