      Piece from Columbia Space Shuttle Discovered

      NASA announced on Tuesday that a piece believed to be of the Space Shuttle Columbia has been discovered, eight years after its fatal crash in 2003.

      A spokesman for the space agency said that the piece was found in a Texas lake that has been dried out due to the ongoing drought in the state.

      All seven crew members, including the first Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon, were killed in the 2003 crash.
