Ping me too. Jael, did you watch the news conference this morning on NASA TV and the reporter from Huntsville's question about the foam and EPA requirements and the weasely way it was answered? Apparently the 'answer' re: EPA regs and this foam breakoff is going to be...'that's old news, let's move on'. Amazing. The guy actually said that it was a long time ago, there had been no problems since that had impacted the shuttle or its safety in this particular manner.
I'm sure the Watergate(tm) class shredders are working overtime at Michoud and NASA today.

I just heard a little more from inside.
I heard that on STS-105 they had a chunk come off of the external tank and wack one of the SRB's. After they recovered the SRB they found a very large dent at the point of impact.
