"We remember with gratitude the seven souls who were lost aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia, Cornyn said in a press release Thursday. "In pursuit of knowledge and the exploration of our universe, these brave individuals faced exceptional dangers and ultimately sacrificed their lives in the name of science and exploration.
