Louisiana's Barksdale Air Force Base Readies for Shuttle Wreckage

Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana-AP -- Investigators will try to reconstruct what they can of space shuttle "Columbia" at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

Lieutenant Colonel Larry Hahn says the base is in a central location, and it offers high-tech communications gear, tight security and hangar space to store the wreckage.
