Old Glory flew at half-staff last week on the Quadrangle in honor of the crew of the space shuttle Columbia, which broke apart as it reentered Earth's atmosphere the morning of Feb. 1. Emory joined the rest of the nation in mourning the tragedy, which had professional and even personal connection with the University; urologist Leland Chung's was one of 84 scientific experiments being conducted by the Columbia crew, shown here in an image that was taped to the Quad’s flagpole. "The astronauts were so courageous; they felt like our partners," said Chung, who was studying prostate cancer growth under zero-gravity conditions. Photo by Jon Rou.
