On behalf of IFF, Chairman Richard A. Goldstein Entends Condolences to the Families of the Space Shuttle Columbia Astronauts

New York, N.Y., February 3, 2003

On behalf of all of us at IFF, I want to express my condolences to the families of the brave astronauts lost in the Space Shuttle Columbia on Saturday. While we are of course disappointed that our second space experiment ended in this way, I think you will agree that the tragic loss of seven human lives is what we should be thinking about at this time. My gratitude goes out to Subha Patel and the rest of her team in the Natural Products Research group for putting together a fascinating space project. We hope to participate with NASA again in the future.

Richard A. Goldstein
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
