Technical error in tonight's Geneshaft

TechTV's Anime Unleashed 'Geneshaft' episode tonight had a technical error. The space shuttle they found drifting was the Columbia. Now, I don't mean the fact that the Columbia was destroyed, they couldn't have foreseen that. The astronauts comment that they were taking supplies to the ISS when attacked by the ring.

Nope. The Columbia, being the first space worthy shuttle, was much heavier than the later shuttles which greatly reduced its lift performance. Columbia was never rigged for flight to the ISS, it couldn't reach the ISS's orbit with a sufficient load and it wasn't equipped to dock with the ISS if it could reach it.
