The Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility (CSBF), near Fort Sumner .... has been used by NASA since the early 1961, when it was established as the National Scientific Balloon Facility.
The facility’s Texas headquarters was right under the landing path of the ill-fated STS-107 mission in 2003. All associated facilities were renamed in February 2006, to honor the final crew of the space shuttle Columbia
