Michael Leinbach and Jonathan Ward join TRUE STORY to talk about their book, BRINGING COLUMBIA HOME, which tells the story of the 2003 Columbia shuttle tragedy that took the lives of seven astronauts, and the extraordinary effort in the wake of the disaster to recover the remains of Columbia and its crew and literally piece together the mystery of what brought the shuttle down. Involving more than 25,000 men and women, and more than 680,000 acres of land (an area approximately the size of Rhode Island), the recovery proved to be the largest ground search operation in U.S. history.
