February 1, 2003. A light flashed over a Texas sky and twisted metal rained across the countryside. As images of the wreckage from the Space Shuttle Columbia streamed across the nation's television screens, they became forever burned into our memories. But behind those images were stories that remained untold...until now.
This story, High Calling, is the stirring portrait of Rick Husband, commander of the Space Shuttle Columbia. His widow, Evelyn Husband, leads you on Rick's journey from a childhood dream, through the heart of the American space program, and into the vastness of space itself.
