Columbia‘s Noblest Experiment

Laurence Simon has this to say about the Columbia diaster:

I received an e-mail a few minutes ago wondering how many results of the experiments on the shuttle had been reported back and how many have been lost forever.

I know of at least one experiment that survived.

The experiment of democracy in the Middle East.

Mission Specialist Colonel Ilan Ramon voted in the Israeli elections.

He participated in a free, unfettered choice in his country’s leadership.

No other country in that region can claim such a thing.

The experiment will continue. And flourish.
