Did NASA keep Columbia's doomed crew in the dark?


Headlines loosely based on a former NASA Shuttle Flight Manager's blog claimed today that NASA knew the shuttle Columbia wouldn't make it back to earth, but they didn't tell the astronauts. We talked to the author of that blog and got the real story. Turns out he was kind of taken out of context. Ed Schultz clears up the rumors and reveals the real lessons of Columbia 10 years after the disaster. NBC News space analyst James Oberg joins the discussion.
