JSC2001-E-44518 (11 December 2001) --- In the Johnson Space Center's Mission Control Center, the countenance on the faces of flight controllers and the fire-fighter's hat resting on a console in the foreground leave little doubt as to the purpose and subject of their gathering. The ceremony was part of President Bush’s “Anthems of Remembrance” event. The brief event started at 7:46 a.m. CST, the exact moment of the attack three months ago. The United States and Russian national anthems were played in the shuttle and station flight control rooms in Mission Control and aboard the shuttle and the space station. The three commanders aboard the two spacecraft - Shuttle Commander Dominic L. Gorie, Expedition Three Commander Frank L. Culbertson, Jr. and Expedition Four Commander Yury Onufrienko, shared their personal thoughts and inserted a special pre-recorded message from the rest of the crew currently in orbit.
