16. NASA video showed debris falling off Discovery
Edited on Tue Jul-26-05 03:53 PM by rocknation

Shuttle returns to space; NASA examining video of debris spotted during liftoff from the liftoff showed what appeared to be a piece of debris falling off Discovery.

...By Sunday, the mission management team will have enough information from the cameras to know whether Discovery is in safe enough condition to return to Earth, a NASA spokesman said before the debris video was released.

In February 2003, Columbia was destroyed during re-entry. Investigators blamed debris hitting the spacecraft during liftoff for damage that led to the disaster...

Suddenly my suspicion that they knew the Columbia was doomed after takeoff doesn't seem so suspicious. And I don't suppose this is a good time to mention that I protested that other shuttle being launched in sub-freezing weather.
