Tagging questions on Space Shuttle Columbia and STS-107

New suggestion: Rename columbia to shuttle-columbia, to allow space for a columbia-csm if needed. Make ov-102 a synonym of shuttle-columbia. Merge sts-107 into shuttle-columbia without synonymizing,...

Should we clean up and separate 'attitude' and 'attitude-determination-and-control' questions, or just further merge these last two tags?

I upvoted this, but now that I've had time to think about it, I'm not entirely sure it's necessary. The tag attitude is not inappropriate on those questions, and the tag attitude-determination-and-...
