London, Feb 2: A NASA employee has revealed how Mission Control decided 10 years ago not to reveal to Kalpana Chawla and six other astronauts that they were doomed to die on re-entry of the Columbia space shuttle.



The seven astronauts who died on February 1, 2003, were remembered at a public memorial service on the 10th anniversary of the disaster  at Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
