Review:

From the reviews:

In terms of explaining the mission itself, Columbia―Final Voyage is unparalleled, and unlikely to be equaled[.]

―Jeff Foust, The Space Review, February 20, 2006

 

The research, when combined with interviews with family, colleagues and scientists, results in what may be the most detailed account that will ever be written about what happened in space during the mission.

―John Kelly, Florida Today: Space & Science, February 15, 2006

"Philip Chien in his book Columbia Final Voyage brings a comprehensive, personal, view of the most recent shuttle disaster. ... Chien’s review provides plenty of interest ... . Included are the experiments, with the identities and expectations of the principal investigators. ... In total, he’s produced a warm memorial both for the people and the mission. ... the book is an excellent source for someone wanting to relieve this mission or to reflect on the nature of the people involved or on people in general." (Mark Mortimer, Universe Today, April, 2006)
