The Only American Not On Earth During 9/11 Found Out His Classmate Was The Pilot Of One Of The Hijacked Planes!
Astronaut Frank Lee Culbertson Junior was the only American not on Earth during the tragedy of September 11th.
This was because he was on a mission from NASA in space. He was also a retired Naval captain.
On September 11th, the astronaut took photos in space of the smoke that was seen in lower Manhattan, which turned out to be the Twin Towers being hit.
After learning that the Pentagon was also struck, he found out that a former Naval classmate, Charles Burlingame was the original pilot of the plane before he was hijacked.
Frank Lee Culbertson was on a 4 month long mission aboard the STS-105 Discovery and left earth on August 12, 2001. Despite the tragedy that happened in his homeland that September, the mission had to be completed. He returned home on December 17th, 2001 at the Kennedy Space center.
